David, Part 13: Pride, Punishment, Provision

Scripture: 2 Samuel 24:1-25, 1 Chronicles 21:1-30
Date: 05/23/1998 
In this continued series on the life of David we will look at the story of him taking a census of Israel, something expressly forbidden by the Lord. Pastor Batchelor deals with a couple of discrepancies in 2 Samuel and 1 Chronicles. The lesson we learn is that pride is a poor substitute for relying upon the Lord. In love God chastises us in order that we may learn to follow truth.
