Scripture: 2 Sam. 8.15; 9.1-8, 13; John 13.34-35
In our world, love and power are usually only connected with extreme difficulty. More often they tend to be functional opposites. In this segment from David’s life we see another possibility: the king is able to be powerful and to love powerfully. It’s a whiff of things to come in Jesus who is both the Most Powerful One and at the same time Love Incarnate.
