Keep Your Obligations

In today's scripture, was in a better place when he asked whether anyone was left of the house of . After many years of struggle, he had become king over Israel. David had secured Jerusalem as his city and had brought the ark of the covenant into it. The had given David from his and bought to Israel. On top of that, had promised that a son of David would rule forever, a promise that would be fulfilled in

However, David had an obligation. Long before, David had made a covenant with Jonathan his and Saul's son. Others may have forgotten but David did not. David set out to find someone from Saul's family to whom he could be kind. 

Today, we accumulate obligations. We make promises that we don't fully keep despite our best intentions. We also accumulate hurts that we have never really forgiven. Worse yet, we often cause hurts for which we do not fully apologize. Over the years our spiritual debts pile up. The beginning of the year is a good time to consider what we have left undone, and our acceptance of Christ has assured us of 's peace. With His Gift of peace, we can make peace. Are there any obligations you need to attend today? Stand on God's and keep your promises right now.  

David asked, “Is there anyone still left of the house of Saul to whom I can show kindness for Jonathan's sake?” 9:1 

Let's Pray 

Yahweh, thank you for keeping your promises and obligations to me. Father, I'm so glad your endures forever. Lord, help me to be faithful, keeping the promises I make and forgiving others as I have been forgiven. In Christ' name, Amen.
