IN1ThATIONL ( I~rrw1oN ! SIJNDAYSHOO[1 LEssoN (By E. O. SELLERS, Acting Director of Sunday School Course of Moody Bible Institute, Chicago.) 5 LESSON FOR JULY 4 r ABSALOM'S FAILURE LESSON TEXT-II Samuel 18:1-15. C GOLDEN TEXT-Children obey your p parents in the Lord; for this is right.- i Epheslans 6:1. His connivance with Joab, in the death of Uriah, was a costly bargain p for David, and the development of sin I1 in his family with its long train of t fearful consequences teaches us that a sin respects not person nor position. I The dark story of chapter 13 involves Absalom's flight and Joab's strategy in d getting him back to Jerusalem (ch. t 14). All is not. as well, however, as it - outwardly appears, for Absalom the beautiful (14:25) soon stole the heart of the ten tribes, Israel (ch. 15), from his indulgent and indifferent parent. Then follows the story of that father's flight and of the son's entry into the capital city This entire story is one of the most 1 wonderful dramas recorded in secular f or sacred history. It may be divided roughly as follows: Act I. Absalom t slays his brother. Act II. David fails c to become fully reconciled. Act III Ab salom's rebellion. Act IV. David's c grief. The lesson for today has to do with Acts III. and IV. I t Act III. Scene 1. David's Flight. and Finesse, chapters 15, 16 and 17. "A foolish son is a grief to his father, a and bitterness to her that bare him'" (Prov. 17:25). On the other hand an I indulgent and an indifferent father 1 brings grief to his son. 1 Scene 2. The Battle of Mount Ephraim (chapter 19). David at the Gate, v. 1-5. The place where David t "numbered" (v. 1) his followers was E Mahanaim (17:27), where Jacob saw, the two "hosts" of angels (Gen. 32:1, 2). What David saw was quite dif ferent. As he waited he had time to contemplate that other time that he remained behind when he ought to have gone forth to battle and which resulted in the sin for which he was even now suffering (ch. 11:1-7). Ab- t salom was shrewd as men count shrewdness, but he made one fatal omission in planning his campaign, b he left God out of his reckoning (ch. g 17:14 R. V.). David's use of Hushali I was fully justified by the situation into which this reckless son was pre cipitated, still it is probable that David d listened 4o-tlh advice of his followers (v. 3) more willingly because of his lk reluctance to fight against his own i son. r, Scene 3. Absalom's Defeat, vv. 6 10. The battle was so planned that a the advantage of the forest was on Da- t vid's side and more of the enemies of ~ David were smitten by the hand of a God (v. 8) than were slain by the servants of David. These men brought judgment upon themselves through their disloyalty to God's i chosen king (Judges 5:20, 21) and in this we see a type of that final victory 1 which shall end our. David's engage ment with his foes (Rev. 79:11-21; II Thess. 2:8). Men who today are disloyal or disobedient to God's chosen King can only expect "a cer- a tain fearful lhokinfor of judgment and i fiery indignation which shall devour the adversaries" (Heb. 10:27). At the end of the battle proud Absalom is not found in his chariot, but helplessly en tangled in the crown of his pride. Scene 4. Abselom's Death, vv. 11-15. "Absalom chanced to meet" (v. 9 R. I V.); there is no chance in the provi dences of God, His desire to meet David's servants is granted, yet that meeting brought Absalom dismay, de feat and ruin. Joab now takes matters into his own hands. He held David in his power and had A debt to pay Absalom (ch. 14:29). Most dearly did Absalom pay the penalty to this vengeful, time abiding soldier. Jeab was not content to slay this proud youth, but, to show his contempt, lie east the dead body into a pit and raised over it a "great heap" of stones (v. 17). So Absalom's proud'monument (v. 18) failed of Its intended purpose. David's victory was complete; even so will be the ul timate victory of our "greater David" (Phil. 3:10, 11). Act IV. David's Grief, v. 19-33. Scene 1. The Messengers. Again our attention is centered upon the grietf stricken father. His anxiety is sin cere and heart-breaking, but it is tardy. The first messenger, Ahimaaz, is a good man, but brings not good news. Is our message one of life or of death? The second messenger gives a diplomatic but a blunt answer to David's anxtous inquiry. What cared David for hi. enemies, his army, nay for himself, if only the "young man" were safe. Application. "Is the young man Ssafe?" Industrially, socially, physical ly, morally, spiritually, his safety de' dends upon the guidance of the home, the father and the church. Only as parents hear and obey the Master's words, "Brlng thy son hither" (Luke 9:41) is the young man safe. David's sin was not, however, sufficient cause for Absalont' downfall; he courted i his own ruin (Jobh 5:40). The great gtstanddlig lesson of this entire dramaS, extending lrom the s eleventh to the ninsteenth chapters, is: "Wbht* Vt 'a r au sweth, that a shadlblaso Arelap, CALOMEL WHEN BIL10US?
