What will people remember?


2 Chron 2-3, 1Kings 5-6 There is a church in a city in Florida that has sat for years untended and unfinished. Whoever was in charge did not seek peace, and today the courts are in control with no resolution. Recalling that image and the backstory is so unlike the story before us today. David’s […]

Pride goeth before the fall…


2 Sam 16-18 “God is the Avenger, not us….” 2 Sam 16-18 “God is the Avenger, not us….” In Proverbs 20:11 we read: “Even a young man is known by his actions, whether his activity is pure and whether it is right,” and the contrast is also true.  Everyone knew about Absalom—it seems, except his […]

Feeling Pinched? God IS the Answer!

Yet David concealed his sin and why  God sent Nathan the prophet to him. As David realized […]

The True 007 Stands Up!


If anyone could write a novel of real life as a 007 agent it is King David. His life of hair breadth escapes reads like a James Bond novel and Psalm 54 fits in perfectly with the plot line. If you are a fan of James Bond, you know that he often escapes with finesse […]

“With God there is No Fear”


King David seemed to always be on the run from King Saul’s army. David often found refuge in the Judean wilderness and in its many caves which were deep and cavernous. We read of one such time while hiding in a cave that Saul entered to relieve himself. What an opportune moment! David secretly cut […]

Cascading Dominoes of Forgiveness


Recently there was a domino contest to see how many dominoes could be erected and then sent cascading down one upon another.  The Guinness world record was shattered when 275,000 dominoes fell one after another revealing a stunning picture before the audience of onlookers. How long a line of dominoes have we erected of those […]
