Tuesday of the Eleventh Week in Kingdomtide
2 Samuel 19—21
Power, division, and disloyalty continue, eventually resulting in the two separate kingdoms of Israel and Judah after the death of Solomon. 19:30 comes from the lips of Mephibosheth, Saul’s grandson whom David had taken as his own. The return of King David is all that Mephibosheth wants; everything else can go. The presence of the Lord Christ in your heart—what else do you need?
The side of Jesus was opened and divided, so that there could be healing and reconciliation among those torn by division. Inner divisions that may be breaking your heart are healed, because Jesus had his heart broken for you.
Greater is the power of Jesus’ love than the powers that would split you apart.
Tuesdays are dedicated to Old Testament history and “The Writings.”
During the season of Kingdomtide this year we read a few chapters of Proverbs followed by 2 Samuel
