2 Samuel 17: Ahithophel's Perfect Plan vs. ☧ Not Godproof
Rev. John Lukomski, retired LCMS pastor, joins host Rev. AJ Espinosa to study 2 Samuel 17.
“The LORD had ordained to defeat the good counsel of Ahithophel, so that the LORD might bring harm upon Absalom.” There was no way out for David—the strategy of his treacherous former advisor was perfect. “But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise.” Chapter 17 shows how no amount of wealth, power, or intelligence can thwart God’s purposes. God is constantly at work in the little details and the little people, like the clever servant woman by the well. Like Christ, she doesn’t navel-gaze or worry about her righteousness. She simply does what’s necessary to love and serve.
