Dear Planned Parenthood Supporter, You Are the Dentist! | The Cripplegate


In 2 Samuel 11, it seemed like everyone was sending someone somewhere. David does some sending (2 Sam 11:3Open in Logos Bible Software (if available), 6Open in Logos Bible Software (if available)); Joab sends Uriah (2 Sam 11:6Open in Logos Bible Software (if available)) and later a messenger (2 Sam 11:18Open in Logos Bible Software (if available)); even Bathsheba sends people (2 Sam 11:5Open in Logos Bible Software (if available)). But throughout all of this sending in chapter 11, there is someone eerily missing: God. We’re left wondering, “Will God get involved and do some sending of His own?”

In chapter 12, we get our answer. God takes over this mess of a situation. He gives David enough time to feel the weight of his sin, and then sends His prophet Nathan to confront David (2 Sam 12:1Open in Logos Bible Software (if available)). He does so by telling a story of a rich man who takes a poor man’s ewe lamb pet, and cooks it for his visiting friend. And although everyone would agree that it was an absolutely evil thing to do, David’s reaction is over the top, He screams “As the Lord lives, surely the man who has done this deserves to die” (2 Sam 12:5Open in Logos Bible Software (if available)).

David recognized that it was a wicked thing for a man with plentiful herds to kill the only companion a poor man had so they could enjoy a meal. The problem, though, is that David had no business calling anyone out on their sin at the moment, since he had just murdered many innocent people! He committed adultery (2 Sam 11:4Open in Logos Bible Software (if available)), impregnated Uriah’s wife (2 Sam 11:5Open in Logos Bible Software (if available)), took Bathsheba as his own (2 Sam 11:27Open in Logos Bible Software (if available)), and then killed Uriah and other soldiers (2 Sam 11:17Open in Logos Bible Software (if available)) just to cover up his evil. After killing a human being, David is nevertheless incensed that the rich man would kill a lamb.
