II Samuel 12:14 Howbeit, because by this deed thou hast given great occasion to the enemies of the LORD to blaspheme, the child also that is born unto thee shall surely die.
When David sinned with Bathsheba one of the greatest sins or faults was how he gave the enemies of God the opportunity to mock God. God’s man would do something so wicked that those that hated God would make light of God. They would say that God wasn’t real or relevant. David’s actions reflected on God and His character.
Do you ever think that when you are doing wrong, your sin affects how people feel about your God? Do you ever consider that it is about more than just you? Be careful because people are watching. No, it doesn’t matter what they think of you, but it does matter what they believe about God.
