Who kills Absalom?
What happened to Absalom just before he was killed?
Did David grieve over the death of Absalom?
LESSON: We note that David was a just and Godly person, but he also had troubles and heartaches. This is a part of life. We all have trouble. Therefore, be helpful to your fellow man.
PRAYER: Father, I know that trouble is my lot in life, but I pray for your presence during those times. Amen
THE NARROW GATE
I walked along the path of life
Till I came upon two gates.
One was narrow, the other wide,
Just as the Scripture states.
My arms were filled with self and sin
so the narrow wouldn't do.
But the wider gate had ample room
To allow my baggage through.
Yet through the narrow one I saw
Jesus waiting on the other side.
I longed to go and be with Him,
To my yearning He replied.
"To fit through the narrow gate, child,
You must be willing to put down your load."
So I left my sins by the narrow gate
And passed through to the heavenly road.
When you happen upon these gates yourself
and, like me, you have to choose,
Lay down your burden at the narrow one
And with ease you, too, can pass through.
