2 Samuel 11:1 – In the spring, at the time when kings go off to war…David remained in Jerusalem. (NIV 1978)
My Musing – He did not go where he was supposed to go. He stayed behind when he should not have. We know the results in David’s life – adultery, murder and the loss of a baby. All of which may have been avoided if he had not stayed behind.
My Advice – When God is moving in your life, make sure you do not linger and stay behind. It may not always result in something as severe as what happened in David’s life, but at the very least you will miss out on blessings you might have otherwise enjoyed, or have blessings delayed that might have otherwise come more quickly.
