We’re going through the books of 1 Samuel and 2 Samuel, which tell the story of King David’s life. Each week we look at a new episode, and each week the episode ties us into another major biblical theme. This week, this particular story talks to us and tells us quite a bit about what it means to love people who have wronged you.
What I’m going to do is kind of recount the story, and as we recount the story, we’re going to see what it tells us about loving a neighbor, loving an enemy or someone who has wronged you, loving a fool, and where you get the power to do so.
This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on May 24, 2015. Series “David: The Man of Prayer”. Scripture: 1 Samuel 26:7-14, 21-25.
