The Joy of Unit-Reading #42 (the book of 2 Samuel)

20 Apr

Man, there is a lot of war and fighting in the Old Testament!  If we accept the Old Testament as God’s inspired Word, then we have to come to grips with the violent world of the Israelites.  As we continue our task of unit-reading all the books of the Bible (except for the Psalms), we have taken some notes on 2 Samuel:

One takeaway for me:  The Bible does not sugarcoat the war stories, deception, or depravity of the Old Testament figures.  Sin is real, but God’s forgiveness is available to all who turn to Him!

My prayer:  “Lord, thank You that I am not personally involved in a physical war, but don’t let me forget the spiritual conflict that rages all around me — and sometimes in me.  Teach my spiritual hands to fight — for Your glory.  In Jesus’ name.  Amen.”
