David and Bathsheba
Lesson 2 Samuel 11-12
As David walked on the roof of his house one evening, he saw a beautiful woman taking a bath. Someone told him she was Bathsheba, the wife of Uriah, a Hittite soldier off fighting with David’s army. David should have put Bathsheba out of his mind when he heard she was married, but he didn’t.

In this lesson, David makes his worst mistake yet. He takes his neighbor's wife, and tries to cover it up. He kills the woman's husband when he can't conceal the error. But God knows the truth. Can we hide from God? No. Can we cover up our sin? No - it just leads to more sin.
Discussion Point: David has a habit of letting situations escalate. When he was hiding in Ziklag, his lies became betrayal. When he moved the ark incorrectly, Uzzah died. Now, a man and a baby die for his sin.
Nathan tells David he is just like this man because he took Uriah's only wife. David is very upset. He begs God's forgiveness and prepares to do what he can to restore his relationship with God.
Activity: Add to the good and bad points David on his chart: he took what wasn't his, killed Uriah, lied and hid his sins; he repented
Sing: Be Careful Little Eyes What You See
Vocabulary: Content - being happy with what we have.
How do we become content? Give thanks for what we have. Draw something you are thankful for. Lead the class in a group prayer of thanks to God. When you see something you want, name two things that you already have that you like and thank whoever gave them to you.Start with a clean white piece of paper. Wad up some small lump of paper and glue it to the other. Now provide material for the students to try and "cover up" the lump (sin). Have various materials like fabric, tissue paper, cardboard, etc available. When they are done, ask them if any of the pages are unspotted - or clean as the original. Discuss how adding more things to cover up a sin just makes the original wad bigger.
