Text: II Samuel 11-12



– “Now these things occurred as examples to keep us from setting our hearts on evil things as they did.” – I Corinthians 10:6

– There are three things about the nature of our sin that we never want to accept: exposure, blame, and responsibility.

– The look that took took hold of him, but it also took from him.

The Look that Took…

  • took his self-respect.
  • took his public respect.
  • took away the sovereignty he had over his own life.
  • took the peace of his household.
  • took his moral authority.

– “Just because God does not balance his check book every Thursday does not mean that He will never get around to it.” – Queen Victoria

– Sin has consequences that no amount of God’s forgiveness can undo.
