The Repentant King
2 Samuel 24:18-25

1. David’s Sensitive Spirit . (v.10)

When I kept silent about my sin, my body wasted away Through my groaning all day long.
– Psalm 32:3

2. David’s Trust in God’ Mercy. (v.14)

Come, let us return to the LORD For He has torn us, but He will heal us; He has wounded us, but He will bandage us.
– Hosea 6:1

3. David’s Sincere Repentance. (v.24)

I counted dollars while God counted crosses. 

I counted gains while He counted losses. 

I counted my wealth by the things gained in store. 

But He valued me by the scars that I bore. 

 I counted the honors and sought for ease. 

He wept while He counted the hours on my knees. 

And I never knew until one day by a grave,

How vain are those things we spend a lifetime to save. -Anonymous

And a poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, which make a penny. And he called his disciples to him and said to them, “Truly, I say to you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the offering box. For they all contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, all she had to live on.” – Mark 12:42-44

She has done what she could; she has anointed my body beforehand for burial.
– Mark 14:8
