I was talking to a friend once about his son.
The young boy was very bright and athletic.
The father said, "Well, he's finally decided
which occupation he wants to pursue."
I naturally asked, "And, what will that be?"
The dad replied, "A garbage collector."
After my shock, I managed to say, "My, that's
The father said, "Well, he thinks garbage
collectors only work on Tuesdays!"
2 Sam 15:23
And all the country wept with a loud voice,
and all the people passed over: the king also himself
passed over the brook Kidron, and all the people passed
over, toward the way of the wilderness.
When Jesus had spoken these words,
he went forth with his disciples over the brook Cedron,
where was a garden, into the which he entered,
and his disciples.
LIGHT from the WORD.
The "brook Kidron (or Cedron)" is synonymous with
weeping and bitterness, sorrow and suffering.
When David was running from his rebellious son, Absalom,
he stood on the Jerusalem side of this brook Kidron,
and wept loudly.
When Jesus crossed this brook, He was going to the
garden to be arrested, put on mock trial, and crucified.
David, the “man after God’s own heart,” though he
was a king, faced suffering.
Jesus, the Son of God, faced suffering.
Sorrows and sufferings are to be avoided if possible.
But, when it is not possible, they are to be ENDURED.
Because of sin in the world, we shall ALL face
suffering and sorrow, weeping and bitterness!
How do we get PAST them?
We endure them best when we follow the example of
our Lord, Jesus.
PRAY, and STAND!
A DAILY prayer life, equips us best to STAND strongly
against whatever this sinful world throws at us!
