When Our Heroes Fail (2 Samuel 11-12)

It can be hard to know what to do when our heroes fail. Our media is always telling us that people are heroes or villains, and it’s easy to see people in these clear categories. But in the story of David we can see that even one of the greatest figures of the Bible was capable of incredibly destructive sin. In this we can see that we’re all capable of being both heroes and villains–and we all need to be saved by a hero who lived without sin, and who could make us white as snow.
