Remember David lounging around in the palace when he should have been out on the battle field with his men? Remember him coveting the naked beauty of his neighbor's wife, one of his own mighty men's precious wives? He should have immediately thought, "She belongs to Uriah, not to me. I need to just turn away and say, ‘Lord, help Uriah to really enjoy his wife.’” But instead his eyes stays focused on what does not belong to him. God had given him all his heart could ever desire, but an illicit love (not love but lust) took control resulting in Uriah's death, the death of the baby conceived by adultery, and the passing of immorality and violence to David's sons. Today we need to cry out to the Spirit of the Lord within and not covet our neighbor's wife.
