2 Samuel 18:14 – 14 Then Joab said, “I cannot linger with you.” And he took three spears in his hand and thrust them through Absalom’s heart, while he was still alive in the midst of the terebinth tree. 15 And ten young men who bore Joab’s armor surrounded Absalom, and struck and killed him.
David was a great leader, a man of God, but David made mistakes as a father. David had trouble with his children, yet David did not address the sins of his children. We all have busy lives and many priorities, but none greater than the responsibility of being a Godly parent. May David’s story (2 sons killed, 1 daughter raped) be a reminder to all of us that before we got out and save the world, we must first start with our family.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
