“And the LORD sent Nathan unto David. And he came unto him, and said unto him, There were two men in one city; the one rich, and the other poor.” (II Samuel 12:1)
David had sinned and the Lord sent Nathan to David to confront him. What an expression of mercy. The Lord could have cast David aside and left him in his sin. However, in His mercy He sent His messenger to reveal to David that his sin was known and that the Lord desired to restore David into fellowship with Him.
Praise the Lord for the messengers that the Lord sends to us to declare His Word – even sometimes when we may not want to hear.
