Love without End
Read 2 Samuel 16:1 through 20:26
Published: Mar 28, 2017
Richard’s parents watched him make many wrong choices. They tried to help him, but he refused their loving attempts to keep him from slipping deeper into trouble. When he was arrested for possessing illegal substances, his parents pleaded for leniency, just as King David had done centuries before.
The king commanded Joab, Abishai and Ittai, “Be gentle with the young man Absalom for my sake.” And all the troops heard the king giving orders concerning Absalom to each of the commanders (2 Samuel 18:5).
Absalom led a revolt to overthrow his father’s throne. Kings normally killed a rebellion’s leader, but David’s love for his son led him to command the army to “be gentle” with Absalom.
We disappoint our Heavenly Father when we sin against Him, but because of His great love for us, He extends mercy and grace instead of condemnation. He will always forgive us and lead us back to the right path. And He expects us to forgives others too.
Thought for Today: You can never stray too far from God’s love.Quicklook: 2 Samuel 18:1–5
