What once were words of celebration....you da man! are now words of condemnation....you da man!
Nathan's prophetic words to David are a method of accountability we don't see today. More than a moral, more than an allogory, this story allows David to condemn himself and hear the truth.
How do you see accountability? Do you embrace it? Do you run from it?
These words of the Lord spoken through the prophet Nathan become words that move David's heart to repent of his wrongdoing. Psalm 51 becomes the poetry to his healing process. This might never happen if words of account did not come to him.
Lord, thank you for the accountability that you provide as we hear your voice through others.
