Here is the Faithful Friday word for you today!
Faithful Friday is an initiative from our clergy to further explore the Word of God and to reconnect people with Bible verses
Please feel free to reflect on what each passage means to you and let us know if any of the passages inspire you.
Blog post by David Hildred:
We read of turbulent times in the life of ancient Israel, and also difficult times for David, their great king. This is especially seen when Absalom (David’s son) rebels against him and seeks to humiliate him out of the throne. David is not innocent; he is a real mix of good and evil intentions and actions – and we are no different from him in that respect, only in the degree to which our lives affect others. Yet, let’s see in these readings why David is described by God (1 Sam 13:14) as a “man after my own heart”. We are all ‘works in progress’ who have the opportunity to respond to God’s call in Jesus to be transformed by him.
