’13 READ the BIBLE IN A YEAR  Today’s Scripture Reading: 2 Samuel 15 / John 14 / Psalm 3


In 2 Samuel 15 there is this “miss it if you blink” story about Ittai. Ittai is not a Bible character anyone seems to remember. His name is not thrown around with Abraham, Moses, Noah, Jonah, Elijah, Samuel, David, and on and on. Ittai is mentioned here in 2 Samuel 15 and I’m not sure that he is ever mentioned again. But in this chapter of the Bible on this day in the life of David, Ittai makes a stand. Here is the story.  1 Sameul 15:19-22 [NLT] Then the king turned and said to Ittai, a leader of the men from Gath, “Why are you coming with us? Go on back to King Absalom, for you are a guest in Israel, a foreigner in exile. 20 You arrived only recently, and should I force you today to wander with us? I don’t even know where we will go. Go on back and take your kinsmen with you, and may the Lord show you his unfailing love and faithfulness.” 21 But Ittai said to the king, “I vow by the Lord and by your own life that I will go wherever my lord the king goes, no matter what happens—whether it means life or death.” 22 David replied, “All right, come with us.” So Ittai and all his men and their families went along.

“…no matter what happens  – whether it means life or death.” – I want that kind of “ALL IN” FAITH.
