2 Samuel 15:13-16:14

SDC13889Due to the rebellion of his son Absalom, David finds himself in transition after years of ruling Israel.  He must flee Jerusalem, some friends going with him, and others staying behind to communicate to him later.  This transition brings out the best and the worst in people.  The loyal Gittites are a contrast to cursing Shimei.  David’s attitude is that the LORD has allowed these events to happen, and so the LORD may return him.  In the mean time, David must make the best of these trying times.

LORD, when we face times of transition, give us the courage to accept what is, and the faith to hope for what might be.
