The temptation to sin is always accompanied by the misguided belief that our sin will do no harm. We somehow rationalize our decision to sin by convincing ourselves that no damage will be done, no long-term impact will be felt. It will all turn out okay. But those are nothing more than the lies of the enemy. In the heat of the moment, when the temptation to sin is at its strongest, he whispers in our ear and assures us that our actions are perfectly just and reasonable. We have needs. Our desires are meant to be met. It’s unhealthy to deny yourself that which you want and deserve. And in 2 Samuel 11:14-27, we are going to watch as David continues to deal with his sin, not with confession, but with rationalization and self-preservation. While David would survive the ordeal, his sin would leave a trail of dead bodies in its wake. His transgression would have drastic ramifications.
