Do these words sound familiar? “Do you promise to love her, comfort her, honor and keep her, in sickness and in health; and, forsaking all others, keep yourself only unto her, so long as you both shall live?” Sure it does. Most of us have made a commitment similar to this in our wedding vows.
In spite of this commitment those who counsel struggling married couples will tell you that unfaithfulness creeps into marriages with surprising regularity leaving broken hearts and shattered relationships in its wake, and they would also say that this happens just as frequently whether the couple has a relationship with Jesus Christ or not.
David was an experienced military leader. He knew that he had to keep his guard up on the battle field, but was ambushed at home in his palace because he didn’t realize an enemy of a different kind was lying in wait for him. He never saw it coming, but we can learn from his failure and build up our defenses in order to ensure our faithfulness.
