Just Because You Can - Tricia Draper

Just because you can, doesn’t always mean you should. We find this truth in the story of David and Michal.

So David sent messengers to Ish-bosheth, Saul’s son, saying, “Give me my wife Michal, to whom I was betrothed… 2 Samuel 3:14 (AMP)

David had been named King over Israel. He had many wives, but for some reason, he wanted to have Michal back as his wife also. They had been married, but Saul had given her to another man during the tumultuous time of war. 

As King, David was within his rights to have Michal come back to him, but instead of asking or thinking of her feelings, he simply expected her to give up all she had and return to him. It says in verse 16 that her husband traveled with her, weeping as they went. She must have had a strong love and devotion to this man, only to be taken away for another. I can only imagine she was heartbroken.

As a loving husband, David was not within his rights to tear Michal away from her present circumstances and demand she be his wife again. It seems he had not considered that she might be happier where she was. Just because he could didn’t mean that he should. 

We find later that Michal hated David and bore him no children. It seems a waste to take someone away for such a negative outcome.
Next time we are at the point of doing something that involves another person, we need to stop and consider their feelings and what their outcome may be. We need to think of others more than ourselves.

When God Says Drop It: Chronicles of my Healing
Donna Martelli

Strange and seemingly unrelated symptoms continued to plague me. My PCP told me that there was nothing more that she could do. She refused to see me anymore for these same symptoms, although nothing that she had come up with had helped in any way. Her final conclusion was that it must be stress!
