He chooses to exploit damaged humans to heal damaged events. The booklet of two Samuel is a amazing testimony to this fact.

Yes. Remember, God is “faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9 NIV). But God will not remove the consequences for our sin in this life (Heb. 12:5–11), and this should make us think twice before plunging into sin. As you read through 2 Samuel, learn from David’s mistakes and learn of God’s desire to forgive and restore every sinner who repents. *** Dr. Wiersbe’s commentaries have been a source of guidance and strength to me over the many years that I have been a pastor.

Second, David knows he needs a complete cleansing. He goes on to say, “Blot out my transgressions. Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin” (Psalm 51:1–2 NIV). David asks for his sins to be blotted out, to be erased from God’s record book. He asks to be washed, like having dirt washed out of clothing. He asks for a complete cleansing. Not only does he know he needs this complete cleansing, but he also wants it. He longs for it with all his heart. Our confession of our sin must be motivated by a desire to be cleansed from all defilement, from anything that is displeasing to the Lord.
