You Are Blessed In The Lords Eyes But...

The story of King David, Bathsheba and Uriah her husband occurred over 3000 years ago. But let us visit the similarities of the same occurrences today.

When David saw the beautiful women of color (Hitites were of African decent) he had to have her. Sound like any of the high profile entertainers, politicians? He sent for her and she fell under his spell even though she was a married women. He mesmerised her. He was the King. She got pregnant, told David and he put a  plan to cover it up in motion.
The bottom line is that as soon as he found out she was pregnant he sent for her husband got him drunk, told him to go home to his wife make love to her so that everyone would think the baby belongs to Uriah.That plan did not work Uriah never slept with his wife, he was a faithful solider and thought that his job was way too important to get side tracked. David eventually had Uriah sent into battle where he was killed. David married Bathsheba the child she was carrying died. God frowned on Davids mess up. David realized his sin and asked God for his forgiveness. God eventually forgave him. 2 Samuel 11.

This is could have been a scene out of any entertainment magazine. It is very important to know that we are men and women. We are going to sin. God sees all. We really have to be cognisant of what we do. And try not to do them. Ask forgiveness when we slip and fall. Know God sees our hearts.
