While sin is simple to commit, it is anything but simple in its ramifications. Sin brings consequences, regardless of the size of the sin. And in 2 Samuel 3:22-30, the sins of David and all those around him, were going to create a maelstrom of increasingly more complicated problems. Doing things apart from the will of God always produces less-than-satisfactory outcomes. David’s desire to have his wife Michal returned to him led him to make some bad decisions. He made unwise allegiances with a traitor. He refused to act as king and punish those who were guilty of murder. He became obsessed with expediency and was willing to do whatever he thought best to fulfill his own desires. Sin is complex and results in complicated outcomes. It may start out with a simple decision, but it has a way of growing in intensity and infecting all those around us.
