Reflections on II Samuel 23-24

Today we see one final story about David.  Note:

  • Sin and consequences – Chapter 24 repeats the same themes of chapters 11-12. David sins.  He confesses his sin.  Yet there are still consequences – consequences that hurt not only him but the entire nation.  Sin always has consequences.  Are you guarding your life against temptation?  Seek the Lord’s help!
  • Sacrifice – David offers a sacrifice to the Lord to end the punishment for his sin. David’s son Solomon will later build the temple on the exact spot of David’s sacrifice, and more sacrifices will be made to cover sin.  Finally, Jesus will come to offer himself as the final sacrifice for sin.  Praise the Lord for Jesus who paid for all of our sins!
