This morning, we are reading 2 Samuel 3:6-39, and 2 Samuel 4. Get into the Word this morning, and then let’s visit!
Abner plays a role in uniting the kingdoms so David can be a king of both (so he’s seemingly a help to David). Joab thinks that Abner’s motives are wrong, and communicates this to David. When Abner had killed Joab’s brother, I think it was in the context of a war, so it was wrong for Joab to take revenge the way he did. It was kind of alot to follow today, but David remains faithful to Saul and his family – that’s an example.
We also hear about Mephibosheth today, in 2 Samuel 4:4. Put a bookmark by that name – we’ll come across him again!
