Despising Can Be Costly
I think it is interesting that in my Bible verses 16 and 23 of 2Sam 6 are directly across from one another. In both verses Michal is identified as “Michal, Saul’s daughter.” That is also interesting. She is the product of Saul: head and shoulders government. In verse 16 it says that “she despised him (David) in her heart.” In v.23 it says, “Therefore Michal the daughter of Saul had no child unto the day of her death.” I believe the statement being made here is that she was not allowed to reproduce what she was. Just about the worst thing that could happen to a woman at this time of history, in this culture, was to be barren. Caution should be practiced in what we despise. Our despising can become very costly, very quickly.
