Wisdom From A King Who Did Evil

Sermon Description

“You and I don’t live in a series of big, dramatic moments. We don’t careen from big decision to big decision. We all live in an endless series of little moments. The character of a life isn’t set in ten big moments. The character of a life is set in ten thousand little moments of everyday life. It’s the themes of struggles that emerge from those little moments that reveal what’s really going on in our hearts.” (Paul Tripp, Whiter Than Snow, 21).

Wisdom to consider for those “thousands of little moments”…

His faith in God failed to become meaningful and life shaping (1)

He allowed his heart to harden by ignoring God (13-16)

Maintaining a tender heart toward God:

  1. Pray for open eyes and ears
  2. Meditate on the holiness of God.
  3. Listen thoughtfully to the Words of God
  4. Permit vulnerability
  5. Be humbled and grateful

He did not learn how use God’s grace in the fight against sin (1, 12-13, 17; “from the Lord”)

He went beyond God’s patience and forfeited divine aid (17)
