2 Samuel 15-20
The Unraveling of David's House (Part 2) • May 24, 2020
Today’s message traced the insurrection lead by David’s eldest son, Absalom. This text presents a David who is deeply conflicted. He has a blind spot toward his son and he is blind-sided by the conspiracy Absalom mounts against the throne. This entire incident, which culminates in Absalom’s death, is a fulfillment of the punishment pronounced on David by the prophet Nathan for his sin with Bathsheba. But even while God allowed the difficult circumstances to punish David, God consistently showed David mercy and kindness. We can observe this at several key junctures in the story. This led us to the big idea of the passage: God is both just and merciful and uses times of chastening to change our hearts.
