David experienced living life both “on the court” and “in the stands”. He was a mighty warrior. Most of the time, we see him at the frontline, leading his army into victory.
The first and most popular story about David is the one where he was able to defeat Goliath, the giant Philistine. Here he was a young shepherd boy, armed with his slingshot, five pebbles and his faith in the Lord.
There are numerous moments like this when David placed himself on the court. He allowed himself to do the purposes of God. However, there was one time, wherein he intentionally he placed himself in the stands.
There was a time wherein he did not go with his men to a battle. He stayed behind. He took himself out of the court. This got him in trouble.
The adultery that David committed was done when he was off the court. He was idle. He was not in action. The product of being off the court can lead you to sin even if you are King David, man after God’s own heart. Always make it a point to be on the court. To be in control. This is most true when it comes to obeying God. When you operate from the stands, you allow yourself to be tempted and you fall for it. On the other hand, on the court, you are intentional about avoiding sin at all costs.
