God does not help those who try to promote themselves through
disobedience and rebellion.

I Peter 5:5c, God opposes the proud, but He gives grace to
the humble.
Father God,
Thank you for loving me and taking care of me. Bless my church, Pastor Ron,
and his family. Bless my teachers for teaching me Your Word. I believe your love
is fowing through me to other people. Help me to obey my parents so things
will go well with me and I will live a long life on the earth. I will tell how great
you are and how much I love you. I thank You that by Jesus stripes I am healed.
In Jesus' name,
Whatsoever things are true and honest, just, pure, and lovely;
whatsoever things are of a good reportI think on these
things. Philippians 4:8
I am faithful in that which is another mans, and I shall have that
which is my own. I Peter 1:18-19
I have been made right with God by the precious blood of
Christ, a lamb without blemish or spot. Corinthians 5:7
The story of Absolom is about relationships is the family of King David.
Just as in our families sometimes there is arguing between brothers and
sisters, Davids children were not behaving well or getting along with
each other. In Bible days the brothers were to protect the honor of the
sisters. Absolom was mad at his half-brother, Amnon, because he had
disgraced his sister, Tamar. Their father, King David, was upset about
it, but was not disciplining the behavior of Amnon. Absolom felt like
Amnon had gotten away with sin. He never forgave Amnon or looked
to God to fx things. He felt he was right in hating his brother and the
anger turned to pride as he judged his brothers sin. The pride and hate
grew until He killed Amnon. Then he ran away and hid for three years.
When he fnally returned his father would not receive him back into the
family. Again the pride and the judgmental spirit rose up in Absolom,
but this time it was against his father, David. As he rebelled and fought
against his father the Bible says that God Himself fought against
Absolom. This is a great lesson warning us not to fall into a prideful
spirit, but to follow Gods plan and trust that when we or someone we
love has been mistreated God will not let anyone get away with sin.
