David was now the king of all Israel. God had brought about what He had promised so many years earlier. But now that David was king, he was going to learn that God would hold him to a higher standard. He was not free to rule and reign as he saw fit. Everything he did was going to be judged by God and would result in either blessing or discipline from God. His decisions would have consequences. His sins would have ramifications. As the king of Israel, David was expected to live a life of submission and obedience to God. He was to reign according to God’s standards, not his own. He was to do things God’s way, not his own. But David would find himself constantly challenged by his own desire to put his own personal touch on his reign. And in 2 Samuel 5:11-16, we’ll get a subtle glimpse into one of the areas where David will leave the fingerprints of his personal touch.
