Though David repented of his sin, God told him that there would be consequences. The LORD allowed David to choose one of three forms of chastening. David chose to fall into God’s hands rather than into the hands of men. It is very sweet when we recognize our merciful Father’s hand in our sorest trials and chastening. Please open your Bible to First Chronicles chapter twenty-one, verse nine, and listen as Pastor Ray Viola concludes his study of this chapter.
