King David was a “man after God’s own heart” (1 Samuel 13:14, Acts 13:22).
Seems an over-statement, since David slept with another man’s wife and covered it up by arranging that man’s death. Isn’t that a whole-heart breaker?
His sin found him out. Psalm 51 tells us how sorry David was.
Have mercy on me, O God . . .
Against you, you only, have I sinned.
I wonder if the dead man would see it that way.
