Why David Wept

“Why didn’t I learn to listen and talk things out?”

In this message, I talk about why I believe David wept when he came to Ziklag. One reason I think he wept is that he wished he had learned to listen and talk things out with his wife.

We don’t always know how to communicate. It’s not always about who is right and who is wrong. Families, husbands and wives, need to talk some stuff out, without breaking things. Talk stuff out without hateful glares, or getting up and sulking out of the room. Talk things out without giving the silent treatment. And we need to listen, too. If we would listen more and respond with respect and gentleness, so many problems could be fixed.

“I got used to being married.”

Another reason I think David wept is that he worried he wasn’t kind enough to his wife. He feared he had not loved her enough and could have been a better helpmeet. I’ll tell you one reason that so many marriages fail: they make it a partnership instead of a commitment. Partnership: I will give my 50% as long as you give your 50%. Commitment: ‘Til death do we part. I will give my 100% even if you don’t. David wished he had a commitment rather than a partnership.
