Scientists now believe that it wasn’t a great gash in the hull of the ship that sunk the Titanic, but six relatively small cracks caused by the ship’s impact with the iceberg. These little cracks enabled enough water to enter the hull to sink the great ship.
As we come to today’s text, David has what seem to be some relatively small cracks in the foundation of his faith. But these small compromises of his faith will result in him sinking from the position of the future king of Israel all the way down to a man feigning insanity in the camp of the Philistines. Only by God’s grace will David be able to escape the circumstances his lapse in faith has caused.
It’s good to know that God is always faithful even when we are unfaithful!!
