EVYL Leader Devo – Day Twenty Five
II Samuel 12:1-13 “Rebuke”
Open: What special meals do you request on personal celebrations?
Dig: 1. Why does the absence of justice and mercy in Nathan’s account so enrage David (Vv. 5-6)?
2. What is Nathan’s perspective on gratitude (Vv. 7-8)?
3. How does David respond to Nathan’s rebuke (v.13; Psalm 51)?
Apply: Do you have a Nathan in your life? Give permission for a dear friend to ask the Nathan-kind of questions of your life.
Reflect: “For a good confession, three things are necessary: an examination of conscience, sorrow and a determination to avoid sin.” — St. Alphonsus Laguori
“To admit our sin is positively the most cheerful thing any of us can do.” — Unknown
