2 Samuel 12:13–25; Psalm 39:7–13

When we look at suffering, we see that it can be carried without becoming bitter or hopeless, just like David did. Even though he messed up, David found comfort and a fresh start in God. It’s important to remember that suffering isn’t always a sign that we’ve done something wrong, and even good people can have hard times. The key is to rely on God’s love and to find happiness in Him, not in other things. The story ends with a call to understand the sacrifice Jesus made for us, and how God is always there to help us through tough times.
