There is much grief in the world, whether you look at the present day or into the ancient past. In 2 Samuel 3, we learn of a great grief in the lives of Saul’s daughter Michal, and her husband David. The Bible had earlier highlighted the love that Michal had for David, and the celebratory marriage between their two families. Michal had been instrumental in saving David’s life from her father. In the absence of David’s presence, to get him where it hurt and to disassociate David from the royal family, King Saul took Michal and remarried her to another man ( 1 SAM. 25:44). Sometime later, and after himself moving on to unlawful marriages, David demands the return of Michal. The cultural wrongs of Israel in these early days seem to be countless and yet, God still spoke to and through men and women of those days. Grief is an emotion we were not supposed to experience in God’s original plan for humanity, but it is something we brought and bring into our lives with the sins that we chose.
