Read: 2 Samuel 4-7
Marked: 2 Samuel 4:12, So David commanded his young men, and they executed them, cut off their hands and feet, and hanged [them] by the pool in Hebron. But they took the head of Ishbosheth and buried [it] in the tomb of Abner in Hebron.
David rarely did things without first inquiring of the Lord (C2:1; 5:19, 23). These men who murdered Ishbosheth did what they did because they thought David would be pleased. He wasn’t; and they paid with their lives.
I should be careful doing what I think, or think someone else would want me to do. What matters is being sure of what God desires. Hasty decisions and blatant disregard of God’s Word leads only to trouble. Do I take time to inquire of the Lord before acting?
One thought on “Don’t be Hasty…”
It is so important to inquire of the Lord before acting. Do not always do this but I should.
