Consequences Are Good

The Bible book of 2 Samuel tells about King David's life as ruler of Israel. 

Despite having multiple wives and concubines, David seduced a married woman, got her pregnant and had her husband killed in war.  Then David married her and planned on keeping all of this a secret, but God sent His Prophet Nathan to explain the consequences.

We all have secrets from the world that we do not want revealed and pretend that God does not know them.  We cannot hide from our Creator, and the more responsible we are, the more accountable we are. 

While we do not all have a prophet to explain our consequences, we all experience these results from our actions, whether we understand them or not.

With consequences from our behavior, we can learn to change and have the opportunity for improvement. 

Consequences make us understand how foolish and destructive our human thinking can be, so we will seek forgiveness and salvation from our Lord, which is just a prayer away.
