II Samuel 20:16 ” While they were battering the wall to bring it down, a wise woman called from the city, ‘Listen! Listen! Tell Joab to come here so I can speak to him.’ “

King David’s men had chased a troublemaker by the name of Sheba to the city of Abel-Beth-Maacah.  There they built a siege ramp and were attempting to bash down the city’s wall when this woman called out to them, “We are the peaceful and faithful in Israel, Why are you doing this?”  She became that voice of reason and in doing so saved the entire city from destruction.  It could be you’ve been pounding on a door to gain entry into something God has never ordained…forcing your selfish desires onto His plan…all the while knowing deep down it’s not what He desires.  Today it’s time to listen to that voice of reason when it asks, “Why are you doing this?” and then respond honestly.
