David lost focus on God and it caused him to make a huge mistake.

Key Points:

  • David became a powerful and popular king in Israel.
  • When we don’t stay focused on God, it’s easy to make a big mistake.
  • David tried to hide his mistake, but Nathan called him out. 2 Samuel 12:1-9
  • God forgives our mistakes, and he wants us to admit we’re wrong.

Memory Verse:

Psalm 51:7 Purify me from my sins, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
