WHY SHOULD YOU DEAL WITH IT? 2
Good people do evil things when they have unresolved issues in their lives. Davidís lust for women culminated in adultery. After the act, Bathsheba became pregnant. When we fail to deal with the issues in our lives, not only will they lead to sin, there will be consequences. Smoking resides in the life of the chain-smoker with the baggage of lung cancer. Sin never leaves us the same.

When David discovered that Bathsheba was pregnant with his baby, he tried to pin it on Uriah her husband. He sent for Uriah while he (Uriah) was on the battle ground. David tried on two occasions-first with words then with alcohol, to persuade him to go home. He knew if could get Uriah to go home, he would have sexual relations with his wife. If the soldier could have sexual intimacy with his wife, Uriah would never know of their adulterous affair. Talk about wisdom. But there was a problem. Uriah, the faithful soldier would not go home to his wife.

David knew he had to come up with a better solution if he didnít want to be found out. He ordered for Uriah to be positioned where the war against the Ammonites was fiercest and abandoned. Uriah was killed. Davidís sin was finally kept a secret. He started with adultery and ended up with murder.

When a thought, an habit etc results in sin, we may try to cover our tracks. This will ultimately set us on the path of sin. We may lie just to try to escape the shame of our sin being discovered. The first step of tasting alcohol can breed an alcoholic. You can handle whatever has held you down.
