  1. He had known the power of the True God’s backing when he slew Goliath. His faith undoubtedly helped him to think clearly when fighting Absalom.

  2. David was a brilliant military strategist. The thing that always bothered me about this was how tortured he must have been since it was betrayal by his own son that caused David to have to resort to military action.
