What did Bathsheba’s husband do to deserve being set up and murdered? Nothing. But King David’s sexual sin caused innocent blood to spill. Who are we hurting when we sin?
Let’s make the time to pray, and when we do, let’s not treat the time like a to do wish list. Slow down and spend time in the relationship with our Father.
God has a blessing for us, but we waste more effort looking back than we do pressing forward. Eyes on the prize!!
Pursue out of love, not personal preference!
First become the vessel God needs you to be to receive His blessing.
But I understood that we do the same thing when we create our own golden calves. It might be our job, or hobby, or new girlfriend or even our kids.
