Against You, You only, I have sinned And done what is evil in Your sight, So that You are justified when You speak And blameless when You judge... Purify me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. - Psalm 51:4, 7
For years, a certain golden eagle patrolled a point off the Hawaiian island, Maui. The big creature was a spectacular sight hovering over the junction of land and sea. One day a helicopter strayed into its territory. The eagle attacked, and all that was found was one feather. Sinful David recognized he had collided with God. But rather than reducing David to a mere feather, God’s heart wanted David’s heart back. David was wise enough to embrace the promise of God, and ran into the arms of hope rather than the blades of destruction.
