Today's Favorite Verse: 2 Samuel 13:14-15

Today's Favorite Verse: 2 Samuel 13:14-15
"Howbeit he would not hearken unto her voice: but, being stronger than she, forced her, and lay with her.
Then Amnon hated her exceedinghly; so that he hatred wherewith he hated her was greater than the love wherewith he had loved her. And Amnon said unto her, Arise be gone."

It was a pretty terrible thing that Amnon did to his sister Tamar. What I noticed though was his behavior afterwards toward her. He acted like he had a right to hate her. This hatred was driven by his guilt, yet he didn't want to acknowledge his actions in this. He made it the victim's fault. It was anyone else's fault but his. He could not even acknowledge what he had done was wrong. It made me think now things never change. I see this behavior still happening today.

Day 855
