Half Way

Today's reading: 2 Samuel 18:1-18

The familiar phrase "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me" came to mind as I thought about Joab's defiant actions with Absalom and previous killing of Abner (see 2 Samuel 3). Joab was the commander of David's army, yet he wasn't fully submitted to David. That's a problem. He had strong opinions and let his emotions control his actions rather than following the clear and direct commands given to him by David.

Have you ever let your opinions and emotions control your actions--even when you knew God was asking you to do something differently? What consequence(s) have you experienced from being partially obedient? Tami

A lesson that I need to learn again and again!

Thanks for the I-need-it lesson, Tami!

I hate to admit it that I have yielded to my opinions and let my emotions to cause my actions not to please the Lord.
I need to acquire all the time instead of half of the time with the Lord for instruction and to obey Him fully. Then God will be honored.
