O my son Absalom!

‭2 Samuel 18:33 KJV‬ [33] And the king was much moved, and went up to the chamber over the gate, and wept: and as he went, thus he said, O my son Absalom, my son, my son Absalom! would God I had died for thee, O Absalom, my son, my son!

How do you explain the love of a parent, even to an erring child? That’s the emotional confusion David had. He was a father and Absalom was his loving son. BetterHelp Editorial Team in an an article of March,2024 says, ” Parenting is often one of the most rewarding and challenging experiences in life. Whether it’s your first time being a parent, or you’ve been doing it for years, your love for your children is likely irreplaceable:’. You would think they were talking about David. There’s an unexplained chemistry between a parent and children. As to why the parental love may be so strong, they confess, ” First, it could be biologically driven. When a parent holds their newborn baby, they typically experience a flood of hormones that create a strong attachment and bond with their child. This bond may be further reinforced as the parent sees their child grow and develop”. Its a real confusion to fight against your son, and still expect him to be alive. So David cried. Have you ever cried for your children? I have. I have also seen changes in their lives. You will see changes too. The battle will cease, in Jesus Name.
