October 21: King David’s Sin

Discussion Questions

Why do you think David doesn’t recognize his own sin at first?

Who did David wrong?

When have you been wronged by someone?

When have you been confronted about you having wronged someone?  How did you react?

Do you see connections between this event and the current conversations and revelations about sexual abuse and sexual harassment?

 

Acting on the Word

Each night, reflect on your actions of the day.  Are there things you did that wronged another?  If so, confess your sin to God and seek to find a way to make things right with the person you wronged.
