Last week, we saw plenty of reasons why David was not the best example of how to be a disciple of God...
Today, we get a little better image of who he was and why he was held up as an example of discipleship.
Despite the fact that his son Absalom was out to get him and had repeatedly exiled David, David still has a great love for his son. So much so, that when informed of his death by Joab, David weeps and sobs repeatedly.
How might we reach out to forgive those who have wronged us, because we have all had that experience. How might we still reach out in love to those who are out to get us?
It is a little thing, but still an important aspect of our path of discipleship.
