2 Samuel 17:1-29
we have a tragic train of events. Ahithophel’s advice was ‘not good’.
His advice ‘was not followed’. He ‘hanged’ himself (7,23). Without going
into detail about this particular suicide, we may make some general
comments about coping with life’s difficulties. Things don’t go
according to plan. Our hopes are dashed. Nothing seems to work out.
Everything seems to go wrong. We allow things to get on top of us. Very
quickly and very easily, things can get completely out of control.
Everything is out of proportion. It seems like there is nothing worth
living for. Suicide becomes a strangely attractive way out. What are we
to do when such thoughts fill our minds? - Remember God’s promise: “The
peace of God, which passes all understanding, will keep your hearts and
minds in Christ Jesus”(Philippians 4:7).
