David was guilty of adultery and murder (2 Sam. 11). This we have called “David’s Sin.” Though a man after God’s own heart, he fell (Acts 13:21, 22). He also faltered when he numbered Israel.

We can learn from David’s other sin:
1. Listen to true friends
2. Confess your sins
3. God is merciful
4. Offer real sacrifices
5. Trust in God.
