He Has Magnified His Word, Psalm 138:2

A Tale Of Two Women, Part 4

1Ki 3:21 And when I rose in the morning to nurse my son, there he was, dead. But when I had examined him in the morning, indeed, he was not my son whom I had borne.

Take note of how the accuser has narrated the events as she recalls, and there has not been interruption from the defendant as of yet. Her heart aches but she appears to have composure as she speaks lest her emotions get the best of her.

The accuser rose up in the morning to nurse her son, only to find him dead. After careful examination not to jump to conclusions and accusations, she was convinced that the dead baby was not her son.

Here is one lesson I get from it, 1Co 4:5 “Therefore judge nothing before the time, …” In our time, majority are quick to make judgements without examining the proof of evidence. This happens when in pain and disappointments we think with our emotions rather than apply critical thinking. Even our salvation is not based on feeling or blind faith, it is an informed faith. When we get saved, we don’t quit on knowledge and discernment, we gain it more but with caution lest we get puffed up. The feelings and emotions ought to have their rightful place, we just need to be careful that it does not override our discerning minds.
