Because Thou Hast Despised Me

Uh oh… Because Thou Hast Despised Me… This is unfortunate for the second human king of Israel, King David. David made an error, he coveted, lusted, which proceeded to adultery, and because of this, it led to murder.

10 Now therefore the sword shall never depart from thine house; because thou hast despised me, and hast taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be thy wife.

Sin usually has a terrible downward slope that leads to death. David’s good point was that he was humble and acknowledge his sin, and didn’t give excuse as to why he did it. Excuse givers have no respect in the eyes of God.

Because Thou Hast Despised Me

We need to lay our excuses to the side, and acknowledge our sin and shortcomings before our God, even Jesus the Christ. Although we admit our sin before God, God does not clear the guilty. Consequences will follow, we just need to be happy if the consequence is not death, even the second death.

David’s consequence turned out to be violent house. God said the sword, or the act of violence will NEVER depart from David’s house. Descendants of David’s house could be experiencing violence today because of David’s act, and they may or may not even know it.

Because Thou Hast Despised Me

The bottom line is that we need to take heed and avoid despising the God of Israel by dishonoring His commandments, laws, statutes, and judgment. We also must treat our fellow brothers and sisters with love and care.

May the Creator of Heaven and Earth uplift you today in the name of His Beloved Anointed Son.
