We grew up hearing in Sunday School the stories of David and Goliath. We learned that David was a shepherd that played the harp and composed many Psalms. At some point in our lives, we’ve all become familiar with Psalm 23.
We’ve heard of how David danced like a slave before the Lord, as he was bringing into Jerusalem the Ark of the Covenant that contained the 10 commandments. In the Bible, David is called “a man after God’s own heart.”
But then, at some point in our lives, all the divine qualities that we have come to admire in David are shattered, especially when we hear the story of David and Bathsheba. Everything that we admire about David, is shattered before our feet, and we never see him again quite the same as when we were children in Sunday School.
