Then it happened in the spring, at the time when kings go out to battle… David stayed at Jerusalem.
2 Samuel 11:1
If you never have read this story, I will tell you what is about to happen. David is about to get into very very deep trouble. The trouble is so bad that his whole life will change from this day forever. His family will never be the same. His kingdom will never be a safe place again. His heart will be changed.
David got into trouble because he decided to stay home and do nothing. He should have gone to war. This is such an obvious lesson, what do I need to add to it? I will add one thing. It is a great English saying.
"Idle hands are the devil's workshop."
For me to live is Christ.
