When we’ve done something wrong, why not simply change the rules? Why can’t we simply say that we did was good instead of bad?
It sounds silly when phrased that way, but this is something we do all the time. It’s pretty common for us to take something we know is wrong and change our interpretation of it a little bit to make it something that’s “right for *me*” or something that “works for *me.*” We become the King of our own hearts: we make ourselves the highest authority so that we can decide if what we’ve done is wrong or not.
As we finish our series from the Book of Psalms, we see the contrast of how King David (someone who could just change the rules) responds when confronted with what he’s done wrong. Listen to the audio from Sabrina’s message, below.
