Devotionals by Dr. John Ankerberg

June 2

2 Samuel 17:15-29Luke 17:11-36

Thought From Today’s Old Testament Passage:

“And the king said, Is the young man Absalom safe?”2 Samuel xviii. 29.

The anxieties of parents are very great, and some young people do not sufficiently reflect upon them, or they would be more grateful, and would not so often increase them by their thoughtless conduct. I am persuaded that there are many sons and daughters who would not willingly cost their parents sorrow, who, nevertheless, do flood their lives with great grief. It cannot always be innocently that they do this: there must be a measure of wanton wrong about it in many cases where young people clearly foresee the result of their conduct upon their friends. … Let us all think, who still have parents spared to us, how much we owe to them, and let it be our joy, if we cannot recompense them, at any rate to give them so much of comfort by our conduct as shall show our gratitude. Let them have such joy in us that they may never regret the anxieties of past years, but may have their hearts made to rejoice that they brought into the world such sons and daughters. If we have had parents who did care for us, and anxiously said, “Are they safe?” let us be grateful to God, and let us never show that we undervalue His mercy by treating the boon with contempt.

Charles H. Spurgeon, The Treasury of the Bible (Zondervan Publishing House, Grand Rapids, MI: 1962), Vol. 1, page 737
