My simple study of 2 Samuel 16

Originally posted on A Dose of God's Word:

And when David was a little past the top of the hill, behold, Ziba the servant of Mephibosheth met him, with a couple of asses saddled, and upon them two hundred loaves of bread, and an hundred bunches of raisins, and an hundred of summer fruits, and a bottle of wine.
2 And the king said unto Ziba, What meanest thou by these? And Ziba said, The asses be for the king’s household to ride on; and the bread and summer fruit for the young men to eat; and the wine, that such as be faint in the wilderness may drink.
3 And the king said, And where is thy master’s son? And Ziba said unto the king, Behold, he abideth at Jerusalem: for he said, To day shall the house of Israel restore me the kingdom of my father.
4 Then said the king to Ziba, Behold, thine are all that pertained…

Now Joab the son of Zeruiah perceived that the king’s heart was toward Absalom.
2 And Joab sent to Tekoah, and fetched thence a wise woman, and said unto her, I pray thee, feign thyself to be a mourner, and put on now mourning apparel, and anoint not thyself with oil, but be as a woman that had a long time mourned for the dead:
3 And come to the king, and speak on this manner unto him. So Joab put the words in her mouth.
4 And when the woman of Tekoah spake to the king, she fell on her face to the ground, and did obeisance, and said, Help, O king.
5 And the king said unto her, What aileth thee? And she answered, I am indeed a widow woman, and mine husband is dead.
6 And thy handmaid had two sons, and they two strove together in the field, and there was…

And it came to pass after this, that Absalom the son of David had a fair sister, whose name was Tamar; and Amnon the son of David loved her.
2 And Amnon was so vexed, that he fell sick for his sister Tamar; for she was a virgin; and Amnon thought it hard for him to do anything to her.
3 But Amnon had a friend, whose name was Jonadab, the son of Shimeah David’s brother: and Jonadab was a very subtil man.
4 And he said unto him, Why art thou, being the king’s son, lean from day to day? wilt thou not tell me? And Amnon said unto him, I love Tamar, my brother Absalom’s sister.
5 And Jonadab said unto him, Lay thee down on thy bed, and make thyself sick: and when thy father cometh to see thee, say unto him, I pray thee, let my sister Tamar come, and…

And the Lord sent Nathan unto David. And he came unto him, and said unto him, There were two men in one city; the one rich, and the other poor.
2 The rich man had exceeding many flocks and herds:
3 But the poor man had nothing, save one little ewe lamb, which he had bought and nourished up: and it grew up together with him, and with his children; it did eat of his own meat, and drank of his own cup, and lay in his bosom, and was unto him as a daughter.
4 And there came a traveller unto the rich man, and he spared to take of his own flock and of his own herd, to dress for the wayfaring man that was come unto him; but took the poor man’s lamb, and dressed it for the man that was come to him.
5 And David’s anger was greatly kindled against the…

Originally posted on A Dose of God's Word:

And it came to pass, after the year was expired, at the time when kings go forth to battle, that David sent Joab, and his servants with him, and all Israel; and they destroyed the children of Ammon, and besieged Rabbah. But David tarried still at Jerusalem.
2 And it came to pass in an eveningtide, that David arose from off his bed, and walked upon the roof of the king’s house: and from the roof he saw a woman washing herself; and the woman was very beautiful to look upon.
3 And David sent and enquired after the woman. And one said, Is not this Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam, the wife of Uriah the Hittite?
4 And David sent messengers, and took her; and she came in unto him, and he lay with her; for she was purified from her uncleanness: and she returned unto her house.
5 And the woman conceived…

And it came to pass after this, that the king of the children of Ammon died, and Hanun his son reigned in his stead.
2 Then said David, I will shew kindness unto Hanun the son of Nahash, as his father shewed kindness unto me. And David sent to comfort him by the hand of his servants for his father. And David’s servants came into the land of the children of Ammon.
3 And the princes of the children of Ammon said unto Hanun their lord, Thinkest thou that David doth honour thy father, that he hath sent comforters unto thee? hath not David rather sent his servants unto thee, to search the city, and to spy it out, and to overthrow it?
4 Wherefore Hanun took David’s servants, and shaved off the one half of their beards, and cut off their garments in the middle, even to their buttocks, and sent them…

Okay, tonight I’ll probably miss “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” airing on ABC (but only because ‘Arrow’ is new over on the CW). Yes, even though I don’t celebrate Halloween, I tend to watch Mr. Schulz’s special each year. See, I have a problem with the “embracing of the darkness” that celebrating “All Hallow’s Eve” seems to bring with it. However, I don’t see that as the focal point of the Charlie Brown classic. Rather, Mr. Schulz seems to have presented a very profound study of those who hold Halloween most dear. And of all characters in his comic, he uses Linus as the vehicle of that study. Linus, (the one most versed in Biblical Scripture and Doctrine) is the one who believes and preaches about ‘The Great Pumpkin’. I wonder if Mr. Schulz was sneaking a lesson about the naivety (and maybe hypocrisy) of Christians celebrating Halloween. hmmmmm…

It’s pretty normal for each of us to feel unloved at times, but we need not stay there.  Jesus loves you.  OK, maybe that seems cliché, but is it really?

Whenever you are in this sort of funk, just remember who loves you.  There is probably a pretty sizeable list of those who love you, and at the top of it is Jesus.  You might say here that you have done some pretty rotten things, and maybe Jesus doesn’t love you.

If so, then just stop to remember what He told His disciples:

“Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.”

John 15:13

Jesus went to the cross for you… what more proof do you need?  Anytime you doubt God’s love for you, just look at the cross!

Sadly, it didn’t work the way I wanted.  I guess the import feature is only good for a one time deal.  Oh well, it was a learning experience…

And Jesus Came And Spoke To Them, Saying, "All Authority Has Been Given To Me In Heaven And Earth, Go Therefore And Make Disciples Of All The Nations, Baptizing Them In The Name Of The Father And Of The Son And Of The Holy Spirit, Teaching Them To Observe All Things That I Have Commanded You; And Lot I Am With You Always, Even To The End Of The Age." Amen (Mt 28:18-20)
