There are stories in the Bible that make your hair stand up straight. But it teaches us that even the great men of Bible times had their failures. Sounds familiar? These stories however are in the Bible so we could learn from them and not just point a nasty finger. Well, let me pull out of an almost forgotten corner the name of:

URIAH
by John E. DeCock
 
There was a brave, great soldier, 
Uriah was his name. 
He fought for God, for Israel and her king, 
willing to sacrifice most anything. 
But on the battlefield he needed 
his backup just the same. 
-Oh king, back up ... Uriah!-
 
Then there was the great king David 
who skipped this time the war. 
He stayed at home and followed the reports, 
commended moves with his cohords. 
In selfishness he'd got his way; 
sin lingered at the door.
 -While on the front ... Uriah.-

There was this gorgeous beauty. 
Bathsheba was her name. 
She bathed and David looked with lustful eyes. 
He wanted her at any price. 
He sent for her and took her in. 
He acted without shame. 
-The sweetheart of ... Uriah.-

Now he had got her pregnant, 
Uriah was at war. 
And David tried to cover up his deed, 
"Come home Uriah for I need
to talk with you, then go back home
and love your wife once more."
-This way he needs ... Uriah?-

The king's plan didn't work that day.
        Uriah's solidarity
kept him from going home; the army was at war.
His character we sure adore.
So David could not save his royal name;
        his pretense of morality.
-His problem was ... Uriah.-

One lustful sin needed cover up,
a second at his door.
'Twas treason which now filled his mind,
"Withdraw backup of any kind!"
David became the enemy of his friend
who trusted him before.
-And so they killed ... Uriah.-

The widow was Bathsheba.
She married him in the end.
But God wouldn't let him get away with it;
two sins God in the law forbid.
His punishment was on the way,
but David did repent.
-Now what about ... Uriah.-

The Davids of our time are leaders,
Bathsheba their desire,
Uriah stands for those who paid the price.
For treason which is never nice;
Withdrawing needed backing up
to them who face the fire.
-The sin against ... Uriah.- 

'Tis lust and greed and also pride
that caused abuse of power.
Good people often deeply hurt you know.
If you caused pain, don't just let go!
Help heal the wounds that you have caused!
Do what you can this hour!
-Do you have a ... Uriah?-
