Re:Verse passage – 2 Samuel 12:1-23 (day seven)

However, because by this deed you have given occasion to the enemies of the Lord to blaspheme… (2 Samuel 12:14)

Often, I forget the ever-expanding reach of sin.  Sometimes I can imagine how choices may impact me, or maybe, if I’m generous, I can see how those choices might affect those around me.  However, in this verse we are reminded that ripples emanate out of our sin that touch countless people.

Others began to use David’s sin to discredit God and use David’s sin as permission to do whatever they wanted.  May our lives never be so.  May our actions bring people into God’s presence rather than push them away.

    Life is about choices. Choice is personal and choice effects others deeply. If we make a wrong choice, it can have lasting ripples into many generations. The same would go for making a right choice. Even small choices ripple.

    Why choice matters? It is all about choices. It can make or break us. Our happiness and acceptance in this life and in eternity depend on the choices we make. I hope this article will add to your reading pleasure!
