'Absalom's servants set the field on fire' [II Samuel 14:30]

'Absalom's servants set the field on fire': It was something of a last resort done to attract attention. Malicious destruction has been employed for the same end many times since. There are better ways of effecting justice but one sometimes is at a loss to find them. There were two sides to the rift between Absalom and his father, King David, just as there are to most feuds. Absalom was a proud wilful son and his father an unbending disciplinarian. It needed true repentance on the part of Absalom and heart-felt compassion from his father. Before you decide to set fire to what is not yours, go the extra mile in an effort to make up a difference.Listen
