2 Samuel 20: Worldliness in the kingdom


This chapter has no mention of God but only one incidental references to Abel being the heritage of the Lord in v19. That captures well the tone of our chapter today. It is a parade of sins. This of course does not mean that God is not causing His will to come to pass but we are struck with the realities of worldliness in all its forms in the kingdom. So as we go through this chapter we want to note the various ways in which sin raises its head in our midst. It is the same sins that wounded the people of God in David’s day that wounds it today.
