Lessons Learned

This year in CBS we are studying the life of David in 1 & 2 Samuel.  Even though I’ve studied this passage in recent years, I am still learning from David’s life.  Some new things struck me in this week’s lesson on David and Bathsheba.

I can choose my sin, but I can’t choose the consequences I will reap…God does.

I may try to cover up my sin and keep it from impacting and hurting other people, but I have no control over that.

My choosing to sin impacts and influences other people.

  1. So true, Susan. Sometimes we convince ourselves that we are the only ones affected by our choices but this is pure deception. As someone stated, “Decisions have descendants.”

    • Good Morning E…thank you for stopping by.

      You are correct, we are deceiving ourselves and buying the lie if we think our choices and sin only effect us. Your statement, “Decisions have descendants” is very powerful. Wow!

      Thank you my friend. I pray that you will have a wonderful Resurrection Day as we celebrate that He Is Risen and we have been forgiven and are free in Christ. Free from the penalty of our sins, free from the power of sin and one day, praise God, free from the presence of sin.
