April 8 "Let Him Curse" 2 Samuel 16-18
Dear Kids, God will repay not only our service but also our suffering. Here it is in this story of David and Shimei. David could have retaliated. David and his men walking through a prosaic valley. Empurpled Shimei walking on the mountainside. Throwing rocks; throwing words. David's men long to rid the world of Shimei. David's humility prevails---what if? What if he is doing me harm because God told him to speak these derisive words. What if? "It may be that the Lord will look upon my misery and restore to me his covenant blessing instead of his curse today." 2 Samual 16:12. You know someone is harming me in my life right now. What if?
