God’s Word is a mirror, strong proof,
basic, factual tool which can typify mankind.
Archaic illustration from this book…
abduction, untruths, conniving and killing.
Individuals, loyal to God for a long span
abruptly drop control, turning corrupt.
King David was a man with a mind for God
How did such disloyalty occur?
First a craving for that which was not his own
having way too much; lust commands sway.
Gravidity runs to duplicity
Finally, fornication’s offspring turns into
Words unmask a king’s guilt, Nathan’s symbolism.
Most important, words also log his sorrow -
“My sin is against you, my Lord.”
David is pining for pardon; his ransom awaits.
David owns up to truth;
his body, spirit and soul worn out,
his rapport with God brought back
always mindful of its implications
