Saul’s Daughter

We are ecstatic to announce that Derek and Rachel are expecting a baby this August! We know that children are gifts from God and it is a gift denied many.

Ruth 4:13 tells us God gives the gift of conception. I don’t understand why some of the most loving couples are not given children. Only God knows why.

Today we read of Michal who had no children.

1 Samuel 6:23, “Michal, Saul’s daughter, had no children to the day she died.” Common English Bible

“…This could mean that David set her aside as a wife or that God gave her no children. In any case, the purpose of this account may well be to make clear that Saul’s line is ended, and even David won’t father any of Saul’s descendants who might claim the throne.” Common English Bible Notes on 1 Samuel 6:23

On another note, I am running 5 days behind on my posting. On this day, I considered consolidating what I am learning and posting once a week. In 2 verses, God showed me to continue posting daily.

“1 Chronicles 16:23, “Sing to the Lord all the earth! Share the news of his saving work every single day.” Common English Bible

1 Chronicles 16:37, “…to minister there continually…following the routines required on each day.” Common English Bible

It takes discipline to post every day. I admit I fail sometimes. There are also verses that are for me personally. Those I may not share. I will continue to do my best.

Proverbs 12:1, “Those who love discipline love knowledge, and those who hate correction are stupid.” Common English Bible

I believe God answered me clearly enough!

February 12, 2020: 2 Samuel 6; 1 Chronicles 13, 15, 16.
