Reflections on II Samuel 8-11

Our passage today is the turning point of the book, as David begins in triumph, but then yields to temptation and sins against God.

  • Triumph – The Lord gave David victory after victory over his enemies. With what triumphs has God blessed you?  How do you think you should respond?
  • Temptation and sin – David goes for a walk and sees a woman bathing. At that point, he should have just turned away.  Instead he pursues it, and by the end he has committed adultery and murder.  How quickly we can fall!  Do you toy with temptations or do you run?  Are you on guard?
