Camp Lose-A-Lotta

What hangs around your neck still? What can’t you get rid of? Is there a summer camp for that?

Spring is coming soon although it doesn’t look like that just yet. 

In the spring, the time when kings go out to battle, David sent Joab, his mercenaries, and Israel’s army to war. (See 2 Samuel 11:1)

That’s when its easier to manoeuvre troops, get supplies, work without weather hindrances. But in the winter, that’s when kings get ready for the war of springtime. They plan, gather troops and supplies. In essence, they prepare for battle.

But when kings plan all winter but do not follow through in battle, they get into trouble.

When that time of year came around again, David dispatched his fighting men to destroy the Ammonites for good, but David stayed in Jerusalem. David saw a woman bathing.  David sent his agents to get her. After she arrived, he went to bed with her. Later she sent word to David: “I’m pregnant.”

(See 2 Samuel 11)

How is your summer Camp Lose-A-Lotta shaping up this year?
