I just noticed a similarity of how David handled his enemies, those who came against him outside of a relationship with him and those David knew. I have been observing how if David knew the people who challenged him, he showed tremendous mercy and delayed judgment, if they had judgment at all. Yet, for those He knew not, judgment was usually swift. It just occurred to me that David, being a type of Christ, is doing what is afforded those who either have or don’t have a relationship with Christ. Whether or not we experience judgment with no mercy is based on our relationship with Christ. Of all the sins that we can commit, the one that is surly fatal, is our non-acceptance of Jesus Christ’s salvation.

I am not sure if even that can be or really is God judging us, as much as our seeing what God has to offer and rejecting that gift. Doing that puts the one who has rejected that gift on the judgment seat by their own volition. God does not send them to their death they take themselves. Hmmm! Must do some rethinking.

First...Jesus made the disciples breakfast. Then, during breakfast...I love the way Jesus restores Peter. Jesus is compassionate, encouraging with purpose and direction. Even though Peter was getting frustrated, Jesus kept pressing into him. Until Peter was completely redeemed.

Henri Nouwen is one of my favorite authors. I have this by book Henri, that you mention. Here are two others that are equally good. Life of the Beloved and Can you drink the cup? They are also wonderful to read!

Peace
