Today is my study day in prep for Sunday's message. We're in the midst of a series on the 7 Deadly Sins [yeah I know, how upbeat and positive is that] that I'm calling: American Idols. Last week we talked about Greed and this week we're turning our attention to Lust. We're even having some short monologues and dialogues as message starters. I was talking about this one last night with our creative director/worship leader and encouraged him to keep it "rated-G".
I'm looking at the story of David and Bathsheba this one. I love the verse one of 2 Samuel 11:
In the spring, at the time hen kings go off to war, David sent Joab out with the kings men and the whole Israelite army." [David stayed in Jerusalem...ooops!]
