Little ewe lamb

 

2 Samuel 12: 1”Then the LORD sent Nathan to David. And he came to him and said, "There were two men in one city, the one rich and the other poor.”

 

David had done atrocious and heinous crime of adultery and astutely planned murder of Uriah; however, for around 9 months, he seemed to be cool, trying to be normal with his wife that he hotly pursued and the new born baby.  Many out there are living their life like this, as though in amnesia, oblivious to God and what they have done; nonetheless, the bubble would burst soon. Beware!  That woman/man who people are chatting with clandestinely on facebook, secret exchange of text,  emogis will all be exposed…..you know what, the Lord later told David ” because you have despised Me and have taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be your wife.(2 Samuel 12:10) Never think God is snoring, never…He is watching you as your eyes rove lustfully and your thoughts raze like thunder with evil thoughts.

 

Do not covet: David did not go to Nathan the prophet, but God sent him, to wake him up from ‘coma’ and therefore Nathan told a story of a rich man and poor man who owned a little ewe lamb.  The rich man had great many flocks and herds but the poor man had just one little ewe lamb that he loved and cherished like his own kid; however, when the rich man had a guest, he did not want to kill one of his own flock but coveted the poor man’s little lamb.  How nauseating is the act of the wicked and the greedy! Friend, when you look at your neighbor’s car, salary, wife., husband, clothes and house with dropped jaws and wide eyes then you are not different from this rich man who had a greedy heart. 

 

Be content:  The Bible talks a lot about being content and satisfied, Jesus said: I am the Bread of life! (John 6:35) Apostle Paul said: Philippians 4: 11,12” I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am. 12 I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need.”

 

Greed / lust leads you to destruction: Greed or avarice is an insatiable hunger for something that you are hotly pursing, that eventually takes you to the path of total disaster.  In this story the rich man kept his flock safe but killed the little ewe lamb and prepared feast for his friend; likewise, we would be ready to RISK anything in our life in order to satisfy that devilish hunger that sadly led David to sin with Bathsheba.
