Can God really use sinful and broken people like us? David was such a good man, except when he wasn’t. Still he is called a man after God’s own heart. In the genealogy of Jesus, David and Uriah’s wife are both named. Through Solomon God continued his redemptive purpose. The failures of others do not encourage us to sin, but they do remind us that God’s grace can redeem the worst of what we have done. This kindness leads us to repentance and redemption.
