David: David's Fall
“But the thing that David had done DISPLEASED the Lord.” -2 Samuel 11:27
God wants to set us up for SUCCESS, not FAILURE.
“Therefore let anyone who thinks that he stands take heed lest he fall.”
-1 Cor. 10:12
Sin: Is it FALL or FAIL?
When a SHEPHERD becomes a KING…
- Lead SERVANT
- Shaper of CULTURE
- Spiritual LEADER
The cautionary tale: If it can happen to DAVID, it can happen to ME!
- THOUGHTS become WORDS become DEEDS
- OMISSION becomes COMISSION
- PRIDE is often the ROOT when sin is the FRUIT
- Satan specializes in making PRIVATE become PUBLIC
“He fell today; I may fall tomorrow.” -Bernard of Clairvaux
