You Don’t Fight A Father

‭‭2 Samuel 18:9-10 KJV‬‬ [9] And Absalom met the servants of David. And Absalom rode upon a mule, and the mule went under the thick boughs of a great oak, and his head caught hold of the oak, and he was taken up between the heaven and the earth; and the mule that was under him went away. [10] And a certain man saw it, and told Joab, and said, Behold, I saw Absalom hanged in an oak.

One day I watched some two young foreign heroin addicts who tried to steal from an old man to satisfy their craving. Unfortunately for them, this was not just an old man , but an ex military. Yes he had grown old, but he trained all his life to fight. The result was tragic for the youngsters. There appears to be an invisible force always fighting for fathers when their children become wayward as Absalom had become. Studies show that the animal Absalom was was riding could actually outthink humans. They also think of self preservation. That mule ran under that tree for a reason. Did an angel with a sword stand on the way of the mule. Did the mule sense the cooperation of the forests? Whatever the case, the mule also worked with David. Everything was against Absalom. He was taken up by the Oak, and held between heaven and the earth. Even the earth rejected him. Don’t fight your father. Disrespectful children tend to develop behavioural problems and mental disorders, studies show. David cried like a father, but Absalom’s case was over. How do you treat your parents or some others parent? How do you treat your seniors in the workplace? Don’t let trees fight for them.
