 "You've chosen the sin--now choose the punishment".  David, after so many years, had numbered the people, had wanted to know his warrior strength, even after Joab had strongly reminded him that this was an egregious error, a sin against God, Himself.  David's third major failure brings devastation to his people.  Leadership guides the nation to be God-honoring, or God-denying, and the entire nation either reaps the benefits or pays the price...  David learns once more to submit himself to the consequences of his choices and the hand of correction from the Lord.  It brings him back to his foundations, even though many citizens must pay the price for their leader's errors.  Now David is nearing the end of his reign and in his great heart for God, even when he makes devastating mistakes, he gathers materials to build a great temple.  His riches extend beyond those of the surrounding nations, but the use is not for war nor for greed, but for his God.      Copyright 2016  All Rights Reserved
