II Samuel 23:39 Uriah the Hittite: thirty and seven in all.
Uriah is in the list of David’s mighty men. Uriah wasn’t just a man who had a beautiful wife. He was one of David’s elite. He was a confident of David. He was a mighty leader. He had proven himself loyal to David.
David kills Uriah simply because his lust caused him to steal Uriah’s wife Bathsheba. This isnt just murder of a stranger that David commits but the murder of his friend. What a terrible thing for David to do.
Now think and see how loyal you are to your friends? Do you take from your friends? Are you a taker? Are you a giver? Are you loyal? What attitude do you have towards your friends? Are you a true friend?
