Today's reading: 2 Samuel 18:1-18

The familiar phrase “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me” came to mind as I thought about Joab's defiant actions with Absalom and previous killing of Abner (see 2 Samuel 3). While Joab was loyal to David, he wasn't fully submitted to him or committed to his leadership. That's a problem. He had strong opinions and let his emotions control his actions.

Do you ever let your opinions and emotions control your actions even when you know God is asking you to do something differently? What consequences have you experienced from being partially obedient? Tami
