Love Them Anyway (2 Samuel 18:5-9, 15-31-33)Rene' Lawson, August 12, 2018
Part of the Sunday Sermons series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Absalom is the troubled son of David. In this passage we find Absalom rebelling against his father to the point of even seeking his death. When David hears that Absalom will be in the fight against his people, David orders his military leaders to “deal gently . . . with the young man Absalom.” This doesn’t happen. Absalom is killed by David’s army. When word came to David about his son, he fell into a deep depression.
How many of us have had troubled relationships with kids that have rebelled against us? Neverthless, we love them anyway . . . as it should be. We must not forget that Jesus loved those who sought to betray him in the same way that Jesus loves us!
