2020 Day 223 – 2 Samuel 10-12 and Psalms 40

David was chosen by God to be king.  He was also known as a man after God’s own heart.  But there were times when God was not pleased with the things David did.  When he had Uriah killed and married Bathsheba, God sent Nathan to talk to David.  Nathan told a story of a rich man who needed a lamb to feed his guests so he took one from a certain poor man.  The poor man only owned the one lamb and it was like a pet to him.  David’s response was one of anger toward the rich man and he told Nathan this man deserved to die.  “Nathan said to David, “You are the man! Thus says the LORD, the God of Israel, ‘I anointed you king over Israel, and I delivered you out of the hand of Saul.” (2 Samuel 12:7)  Like David, it is usually easier for us to see others faults before we see our own.  Jesus teaches us this lesson as well.  “You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.” (Matthew 7:5)
