Well things should be back to normal this week. We continue following David in a chapter that doesn't have a lot directly about David in it. Interesting thing is that it doesn't seem to have a lot about God in it either. Except the author says it does. We'll be trying to figure that one out. Expect more comfort than conclusions though. Also a great week to pray together about Thanksgiving and the holiday season in general. Lots to be thankful for and yet some families precious to us will have empty seats and sad hearts this year. How we need to love and pray for one another!

This week we continue to follow David out of Jerusalem. Last week he met friends and showed faith in dealing with them. This week he meets enemies and shows faith in dealing with them. A lot to learn. For me anyway, hope for you too.

Well we are now getting back to the story of David already in progress. This week we see Absalom attempting, with some success, to steal the kingdom from his father and David retreating. We meet a couple of interesting characters along the way and also seem to finally get back to a more recognizable David, the man of faith. Something to learn from him when he appears down but not out.

Well, if you thought after the Bathsheba chapter we were out of the ugliness you might need to reconsider. This week we find the kingdom of David cracking open to reveal lust, rape, anger, disgrace, hatred, and murder. May sound like the average TV show anymore but this was real and this was really bad. Making sense of it and finding any "moral to the story" is challenging. We'll see if I am up to the challenge Sunday. Prayer ahead would be appreciated!

So where does David's terrible series of sinful choices leave him? We got a hint right at the end of the chapter when we are told in no uncertain terms that what he had done was evil in God's eyes. But, then, in an unexpected move God sends a prophet with a story. A story that leads to revelation, accusation, confession, repentance, forgiveness, and enduring consequences. A lot to try to take in and apply!

Last week we saw the beautiful picture of David remembering his experience of covenant love and faithfulness and looking for someone to show it to himself. He found that person in Jonathan's son Miphiboseth and freely gave him protection, provision, and a new position. As we turn the page we see David again extending covenant faithfulness only to have it rudely rejected plunging nations into a war. David is certainly not the only one to have love and peace rejected and the consequences are always severe. We'll think about that.

We're back. Survived the cycling vacation with fairly minor injuries and very major enjoyment. The beautiful and challenging ride along the CA coast from Carmel by the Sea to Big Sur was a highlight we will never forget. Speaking of never forgetting...some 15 to 20 years after David made a promise to Jonathan he still remembers it and acts upon it. We will look at the touching story of David and Mephibosheth and reflect on the important matter of covenant faithfulness. Ready to get back to it? I am.

It is impossible to exaggerate the importance of the next chapter we take up in 2 Samuel. Many see it as the very heart of the Old Testament. It contains God's announcement of what Reformed Theologians frequently refer to as the Davidic Covenant. This is what all the other covenants were preparing for and the later prophets explained. The authors of the Gospels and Paul see Jesus clearly in this and rely heavily on it to explain the person and work of our Lord. Exciting Gospel material to expound!
