2 Samuel 2.5
David sent messengers to the men of Jabesh Gilead: "God bless you for this - for honoring your master, Saul, with a funeral.
may we keep giving honour where honour is due. thank you for being so generous to us that a person’s history is a non-issue with us honouring them because you were the one who planted them where they are and you planted us together with them. thank you lord that we don’t have to look at each other and deal with each other based on who we think each other to be, because all we have to do is keep our eyes on you and deal with each other the way you see us - your creation, your loved, your redeemed. thank you for doing this, God. you are amazing!
