II Samuel 13:21 – 22

Foundation for Rebellion

What David didn’t realize is that in not dealing with the situation he was allowing a foundation to be laid in Absalom’s life that would eventually lead to rebellion.

1. Anger

 David’s anger was righteous but he did nothing.

Prov.19:12 – The king’s anger is like the growling of a lion

 Absalom’s anger was justified but he was bent on revenge

Ephesians 4:26-27

Be angry and sin not

Let not the sun go down on your wrath

Neither give place to the devil

Ephesians 6:4 – Fathers provoke not your children to anger

but bring them up in the discipline and

instruction of the Lord

(New Revised Standard)

Colossians 3:21 – Fathers, do not exasperate your children,

so that they will not loose heart

(New American Standard)

Exasperate – To stir up, To stir to anger, annoy,

to extremely agitate

2. Resentment –

 Favoritism

 Injustice

Hebrews 12:15 – Looking diligently lest any man fail of

the grace of God lest any root of bitterness

spring up whereby many are defiled.

3. Hatred

I John 3:15 – Whosoever hates his brother is a murderer

II Samuel 13:23 – Revenge plotted

Time

Unresolved Anger

Hatred

Resentment

First step in rebellion – Take matters into your own hands.

You can get things resolved.

II Samuel 13:24 –39 – Absalom executes his plan
