True Help for True Grief (Family Worship lesson in 2Samuel 18:33–19:8)

How does God show mercy to David in his intense grief? Pastor leads his family in today's "Hopewell @Home" passage. 2Samuel 18:33–19:8 prepares us for the second serial reading in the morning public worship on the coming Lord's Day. In these nine verses of holy Scripture, the Holy Spirit teaches us that when our grief is intense, we need to see that we still have the Lord Himself, so that we will not be blind either to all of the blessings that He continues unto us (Him Himself, most of all!), or to the pains of others to whom we ought to be ministering. For David, the Lord gives this sight especially by giving him a true friend who will remind him of this truth, and a soft heart to be able to listen to his friend.
