READ: 1 Samuel 31 and 2 Samuel 1
PONDER: Here is how (on a Friday afternoon) I am intending to unpack the text.
Title: When All is Dark

2. Sometimes the best thing to do is cry.
3. Sin leads to trouble
4. The light often shines brightest in the darkness.
5. Let your failures stand... so grace is seen.
