PICTURE: The Creek. This creek/stream/river is about a 5 minute walk from my grandparent's house. Linus and I went down there every day to walk and play. It is sooooo peaceful and beautiful.
READING: 2 Samuel 17-19. 2 Sam 17 - Absolom is advised not to go up against David (history would tell him that this is not a good idea). He didn't like that so Absolom found counsel with another. IDIOT!
Then Absolom gets killed.
David is an amazing king. The people really seem to admire him. Sure he has his faults, but he really is a man seeking God's heart.
