Worship and Return
Passage: 2 Samuel 19:9–19:43
This is a difficult passage to dig into, because King David is not acting like a leader; he’s falling apart because of his son, who tried to ruin him. There are kingdom matters to attend to, after all. There are issues to be dealt with. Joab is attempting to wake David up to this reality, but isn’t this often how we react in our own lives? We can be a distracted people, living our lives outside of the reality that there are Kingdom responsibilities at stake. Who is really on the throne in our own lives? Do we "seek first the Kingdom of God"?
