Discussion for 2 Samuel 11

    David Slept with her
  • A disciple
    It isn't always complacency that causes a fall; but we should rather recognize the weakness of the flesh, as not able to stand against the wiles of the devil. David was a great man of God, as was Peter; but through the weakness of the flesh they sinned; and we should better take instruction and warning, rather than pontificate. Pray that you enter not into temptation; is God's way to victory!

    V. 1 - David didn't become 'weary' from battle; he became - complacent, because God had ALWAYS done for him in his every endeavor for God. So he listened to satan, 'Your men can handle this without you'. And he then saw what satan planned for him to see. And Solomon, the product of this union, did not turn out well at all. God 'used' Solomon for HIS purpose - because He knew his 'true' heart.

    David was supposed to be a man of God and he messed up. His flesh betrayed him. He plotted and schemed against his own servant. He took the man's wife then killed the man. Today the same thing happen.
  • Vannetta
    Sin will have you so blind that you cannot see your judgment right in front of you. In verse verse 25 David said" the sword devour one as well as another". God's judgment to David in II Samuel 12 verse 10; the sword shall never
    depart from thine house. Learn to be careful of your actions it not only effect you but your whole family. Let the holy spirit lead and guide you in righteous..

    I think David not fulfilling his purpose.. being King and leading his army into war, then he wouldn 't have made the mistake he made
