Notes: September 18 – 2 Samuel 18

A father’s grief over a wicked and rebellious son

  • The father: David
  • The son: Absolom
  • The wicked rebellion: usurping his father’s throne
  • The grief: “Would God I had died for you, O Absolom”

Meditation Points:

  1. Children, like their fathers, are born sinners
  2. Children bring joy to their fathers; but
  3. Children also bring sadness to their fathers.
  4. Fathers love their children; and
  5. Fathers grieve that their children live in sin
