QT Kings 1:1-27

March 23, 2015

In today's QT, Adonijah is proclaiming himself to be King himself "I will be king." and cause a commotion toward legitimatizing his own will by inviting everyone and killing a lot of cattles and such. This is stark contrast of the current King David, who God has made king who was also legitimized a great soldier in battles. Adonijah's attempt on the other hand seems like a desperate attempt to matter. The motives behind his will to become a king is most likely purely of self-interest. This is not a good start for a king. There is no need for him like a revolution, or any legitimacy there would be if David named him in a coronation.

Yesterday, and just recently in general, I am seeing some people go through some really tough situations. Things I have only though about, and can't even imagine what it would be like. It made me look at things I sweat over in my life. Things, I have called or have felt were and are hardships of my life look easy by contrast. One of these things is something I have been indifferent (dead) about as I've thought about it before in the past, and there was simply nothing I can do. Even now, there is nothing I can do, but I felt that I should really start praying about it having encountered someone who's smack in the middle, directly affected by the mess in pain and suffering.

So much going through my mind and heart right now that I can't make sense. Work is so easy compared to the real wicked problems of this world. Maybe that's why I'm turned off by politics, and prefer business and technology over other things.

Application: pray
