If you wanted a study of character, nobility, wisdom, courage, and devotion; you could not find a better man than David. The Bible calls him, “…a man after God’s own heart” (Acts 13:22).
Yet there was a dark chapter in David’s life. Even though he was a great man and loved God, David committed a horrible and egregious sin against Almighty God. He entered into an adulterous affair with Bathsheba. Then, in an attempt to cover his sin, he arranged to have her husband killed.
We need to be forewarned! If it could happen to David, it can happen to us. First Corinthians 10:12 says, “…let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.” And so, we need to see how and why this happened in the life of this great man.
