YOU ARE THE MAN!

“Nathan then said to David, ‘You are the man!’” (2 Samuel 12:7), when Nathan was confronting King David about his sin with Bathsheba, the wife of Uriah.

“Then David said to Nathan, ‘I have sinned against the Lord,’” (vs. 12).

David was a courageous man to acknowledge his sin, which would eventually become known widely throughout his kingdom, and which has now been told repeatedly down to our time.

But perhaps Nathan the prophet was equally or even more courageous in confronting his king who could have easily disposed of him! Yes, God did also give him skill in confronting the king (read the account!).

Courage. What do we need courage for today? May God help us. He does help us do the right thing, and He blesses those who do the right thing.
