  1. Liz Kuster says:

    In 2 Samuel, there is such a fierce precedent set for turning the other cheek, forgiveness and justice. David mourns for Abner as he mourned for Saul—men who had been his enemies.

  2. Sarah Johnson says:

    We’re so lucky that God’s strength is made perfect in our weakness and that the grace he gives freely is perfect for us!

  3. Lois Shaw says:

    Grateful for David’s example of harshly disapproving of revenge…especially after all he endured at the hand of Saul’s house.

  4. Carly Plugers says:

    9But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.

    “For when I am weak, then I am strong.” amen !!-ellie

  6. JoAnn Foley-DeFiore says:

    7-10Because of the extravagance of those revelations, and so I wouldn’t get a big head, I was given the gift of a handicap to keep me in constant touch with my limitations. Satan’s angel did his best to get me down; what he in fact did was push me to my knees. No danger then of walking around high and mighty! At first I didn’t think of it as a gift, and begged God to remove it. Three times I did that, and then he told me,

    My grace is enough; it’s all you need.
    My strength comes into its own in your weakness.

    Once I heard that, I was glad to let it happen. I quit focusing on the handicap and began appreciating the gift. It was a case of Christ’s strength moving in on my weakness. Now I take limitations in stride, and with good cheer, these limitations that cut me down to size — abuse, accidents, opposition, bad breaks. I just let Christ take over! And so the weaker I get, the stronger I become.
