Abimelech: We The Wayward
Topic: Redemption/Reconcilliation Scripture: Judges 9:1–9:57
WEEK 12 OF SERIES
As is often true in the book of Judges, we are not the victims in this story. We are Abimelech. We are hurt, maligned, mistreated, and disrespected, and instead of remembering God, remembering his goodness, remembering that he too suffered just as we have, we strive for the position of security, comfort, or approval that we believe will fill the void in our hearts and lives. We must understand this act of remembering. It is not simply acknowledgment or remembering in the sense that we are accustomed to. It is a recollection, a memorial, a pillar, a reorientation.
