Devotionary is a new podcast that is designed to make the Bible accessible and applicable to everyday life. It combines the inspiration of a daily devotional and the insights of a commentary, but in language that is easy-to-understand. We will be working our way through the entire Bible offering a chapter-by-chapter overview of each book. The goal is to give you a solid understanding of the Bible’s overarching and unified message of redemption. We hope you enjoy.

Ignoring our sin is a constant temptation for the child of God. Sometimes, we think that if we just keep it out of sight and out of mind, it will go away. Once we’ve committed the sin, we are tempted to simply move past it and get on with our lives. And we hope that God will do the same. But in the life of David, we have a perfect example of sin’s insidious impact on our lives. It never goes away, no matter how much we try to ignore it. And in 2 Samuel 14:18-24, David will continue to avoid his God-given responsibility to discipline his own son for the murder of his half-brother. David will allow Absalom to return from exile, but will choose to sequester him away, refusing to see him or to deal with his sin. But, as we’ve seen before, David’s choice to do nothing will not make Absalom’s sin go away. And it will not prevent God from bringing just and righteous judgment on David and his house.
