WHY SHOULD YOU DEAL WITH IT?

If you went to Sunday School as a child, Iím sure you were thrilled by the story of how David, a little boy killed Goliath the giant. David is the greatest king the nation of Israel ever produced. History records that he never lost a battle. However, there was a battle he constantly lost. David had a thing for women. According to 2 Samuel 3:2-5, he had six sons from six different women, before he was crowned king of Israel.

After he became king, 2 Samuel 5:13 records that David took for himself more slave women and wives in Jerusalem. You would think that David would be satisfied with these women. You are about to be disappointed. While in his palace, he saw Bathsheba. That familiar desire lit a fire he couldnít put out. He had to have this woman. Without taking a thought, he sent messengers to bring this dashing damsel to him. The rest they say is history, (2 Samuel 11:1-8). We later discover that Bathsheba is married. David has just committed adultery. His unusual love for the opposite sex had driven him to have another manís wife.

Like David we may have an unusual love for something or someone. Every inordinate affection will eventually lead to sin if it is not dealt with. Whether the object of affection is sex, food, money, power etc is irrelevant. We will ultimately break Godís standard if we fail to address it. I believe David never set out that day to break Godís heart. Yet he did because the desire for women had always entangled him. If you donít deal with it, it will deal with you. You will not fail.



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
