From Hiding to Honesty
August 8, 2018
Bailie Gregory leads us in meditating on 2 Samuel 11:26-12:13a. Nathan confronts David after David attempts to cover up his sins. Nathan addresses David using a parable, which serves as a reminder to David of his past anointing by God. We see what its important to have someone who will remind us we are called, and that God cares for us. We are reminded of who and whose we are. We are empowered by the Spirit to recognize and admit the sin in our own lives that hurts God, ourselves, and others. Today can be a day for repaired relationships and for new beginnings! The Holy Spirit is gifting us with the ability to respond–so let us respond to the gracious offer of reconciliation and live lives of gratitude and love for all. Amen.
