2 Samuel 4:9-12
2 Samuel 4:9-11 But David answered Rechab and Baanah his brother, the sons of Rimmon the Beerothite, and said to them, “As the LORD lives, who has redeemed my life from all adversity, when someone told me, saying, ‘Look, Saul is dead,’ thinking to have brought good news, I arrested him and had him executed in Ziklag-the one who thought I would give him a reward for his news. How much more, when wicked men have killed a righteous person in his own house on his bed? Therefore, shall I not now require his blood at your hand and remove you from the earth?”
And now, Admonition, brought to you by the Collierville Church of Christ.
Assumptions are a dangerous thing. In Second Samuel Chapter 4, two men kill Saul’s son who has taken the throne of Israel, and they bring his head to David thinking because he’s David’s enemy, David will reward them. They assumed wrong. We read in second Samuel, Chapter four,
As the Lord lives, who has redeemed my life from all adversity. When someone told me saying, Look, Saul is dead, thinking to have brought good news, I arrested him and had him executed in Ziklag, the one who thought I would give him a reward for his news.
How much more when wicked men have killed a righteous person in his own house on his own bed. Therefore, shall I now require his blood at your hand and remove you from the earth?
Assumptions caused these two men to die. Be careful of your assumptions.
