PRAY OVER THIS:
“Then it happened one evening that David arose from his bed and walked on the roof of the king’s house. And from the roof he saw a woman bathing, and the woman was very beautiful to behold.”
2 Samuel 11:2
Second Samuel 11:1 says: “It happened in the spring of the year, at the time when kings go out to battle, that David sent Joab and his servants with him, and all Israel; and they destroyed the people of Ammon and besieged Rabbah. But (notice that the Holy Spirit put the word but there) David remained at Jerusalem.” Then, in today’s verse, it was time to go to bed, but David was getting out of bed. It was at evening tide that he arose from his bed. In these two verses, we see that David committed the sin of idleness. He committed the sin of omission.
