European Leadership Forum '18 - "David's Sin" - Peter J Williams - Talk 3
2 Samuel 11:1 - 12:7: In the third part of his series on David, Peter J. Williams outlines how David has gone from being the good shepherd willing to risk his life for the sheep to the ravenous beast taking the sheep from next door. This transformation was not sudden. We can trace a series of steps David took prior to his fall which led him to compromise, even as God continued to do great works through him. We all need to be careful not to mess up. David’s sin caused disaster, but God’s grace remained.
