” ‘Now therefore, the sword shall never depart from your house, because you have despised Me and have taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be your wife.’ ”
2 Samuel 12:10
- In this verse David is getting reprimanded for sleeping with Uriah the Hittite’s wife, and then killing him battle in order to cover up his disgraceful actions.
- This verse shows that while God forgives (He forgives David in subsequent verses) there are still consequences for our actions.
- Later on in 2 Samuel the reader starts to see how the sword makes its way into David’s house.
Yesterday I spent most of the day mourning the loss of a friend I had grown really close to. While he didn’t die, he chose to remove himself from my life and exposed several lies he had been telling in the process. He was one of my few friends of faith… and unfortunately the way he handled things were incredibly hurtful and confusing.
Today I am feeling somewhat better and I am trying to focus my attention on the Lord and remember that I am simply a soldier for Him.
I did not stretch yesterday, however, I did pray intermittently throughout the day.
