Notes from the Journey with David – 113

113. He handed them over to the Gibeonites who killed and exposed them before the Lord (2 Samuel 21:9).
Seven of Saul’s descendants are put to death for his crimes against the Gibeonites. What a tragedy! One mom lost five sons on the same day! It’s hard to imagine the mental and emotional anguish and the attitude this generation must have had toward Saul. I wonder how many might feel similarly toward the ancestors who launched their families down a tragic road. Our steps do matter, not only for our lives, but for those who follow after us. Each individual must be careful that he’s not sowing seeds that will destroy future generations.
