Taking a Stand

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: 2 Samuel 3:31-39

When David discovers that Abner has been murdered by two men who are leaders in his administration and also his friends, he is stunned and mortified. But he doesn't let the fact that these two men are close to him stop him from taking immediate action to show that he was not aware of or involved in any way with this sinful wrongdoing.

He publicly recognizes Abner's life of service by joining the funeral process, singing a song about Abner's murder and refusing to eat the day of the funeral. He then speaks openly with his officials about the sinful and problematic actions of Joab and Abishai who are part of their group of leaders--not an easy or pleasant task for David.

When have you taken a stand for something that you knew was right? Was it difficult? How did God help you? How does standing up for what's right impact your relationship with God? Tami

Tami, We see consistency in David's standing for what is right.again.

This lesson spoke to my heart, when was the last time that I took a stand for what is right and be refreshed to see how this impacts my relationship with God.
I have done it,difficult only when I did not ask the Lord to help me to do what I knew was right!
May I be bold to stand,be consistent and more intentional as I have opportunities to stand for what is right!
