Sermon Text: 2 Samuel 18:1-33


  1. Bent on Retribution
  2. Bound for Restoration

Reflection Questions:

  1. What’s a big problem?  How do you desire to handle that problem?  What’s your best – most sensible – solution? …Does Jesus agree with your solution?
  2. When was a time that God called you to do something that you thought was a waste of time?
  3. What are 2 things that you desperately desire to do (and perhaps believe to be sensible), but you avoid them because your king commanded you to?
  4. When was a time you savored the act of submission?  When was a time you found the act of submission to be sour?
  5. Do you allow yourself to desire the impossible based on God’s promise to pull-off the impossible?
