Notes from the Journey with David – 84

84. Be quiet now, my sister. He is your brother. (2 Samuel 13:20).
Absalom’s scheming personality raises its ugly head more than once. He is not one to face the moment head on, but stores up his anger for another day. This is the kind of leader that is difficult to trust. His words to Tamar seem unfeeling, as though hers is the wrong behavior. This kind of “passive aggressive” behavior is both controlling and impossible to trust. Leaders who refuse to confront evil often create such scenarios. They focus the attention on themselves as the story waits to see what they will do. The right action would have been to take matters to the king and pursue approriate reprisal. But Absalom has a different plan, one that proves his own evil heart. And one that will lead to his future destruction.
