mercy and judgment

2 Samuel 12

David’s confession before Nathan was a sign of true repentance, so the LORD chose to forgive his sins.  But because his actions had brought dishonor to God, the consequences remained.  Bathsheba’s child would die.  God’s mercy is great, but his justice is also severe.  No one should presume upon God’s mercy.  Not even David was immune to his judgment.

We respect you LORD.  Forgive us our sins, and may our lives hallow your name.
