I have to go off on a bit of a tangent today. What in the world are we supposed to learn from the details surrounding Abigail’s first husband? The guy is mean and wicked, sure, we get that, but after she appeases David with the gifts, the man is drunk and throwing a party. She decides to tell him what happened when he sobers up and he has a stroke. Now as weird as that is, he is now paralyzed and God strikes him dead ten days later. What! So the moral of the story is:
A) Get drunk and you could have a stroke
B) Don’t tell someone bad news when they have a hangover or they could become paralyzed.
C) God will strike you dead after letting you suffer for 10 days if you are a jerk.
Is there a letter “D”?
