Psalm 51:1–2 ESV
Have mercy on me, O God, according to your steadfast love; according to your abundant mercy blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin!

What can we learn from how David reacted to being confronted with his sin?

Proverbs 28:13 ESV
Whoever conceals his transgressions will not prosper, but he who confesses and forsakes them will obtain mercy.
Psalm 51:1 ESV
Have mercy on me, O God, according to your steadfast love; according to your abundant mercy blot out my transgressions.
Psalm

Why is David a good example for anyone who is struggling to forgive themselves?

Psalm 51:3–4 ESV
For I know my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me. Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight, so that you may be justified in your words and blameless in your judgment.
Psalm
Psalm 51:7–12 ESV
Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. Let me hear joy and gladness; let the bones that you have broken rejoice. Hide your face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities. Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from your presence, and take not your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit.

Did David realize the full weight of what He had done? Do people today understand the depth or seriousness of sin?

Psalm 51:4 ESV
Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight, so that you may be justified in your words and blameless in your judgment.
Psalm 51:11 ESV
Cast me not away from your presence, and take not your Holy Spirit from me.

What does this Psalm teach us about how we should respond to God’s grace and forgiveness?

Psalm 51:
Psalm 51:13–15 ESV
Then I will teach transgressors your ways, and sinners will return to you. Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, O God of my salvation, and my tongue will sing aloud of your righteousness. O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth will declare your praise.
