Scriptural Meditation- 2 Samuel 17:20

Avshalom’s servants came to the woman at the house and asked, “Where are Achima‘atz and Y’honatan?” The woman answered them, “They’ve crossed the stream.” After searching and not finding them, they returned to Yerushalayim.


There is a Torah principle that life is so sacred, that almost any commandment can be broken in order to preserve life. This example reminds me of Rahab and the two spies Joshua sent to Jericho. In that instance The Father rewarded her and her family for protecting his children through deception. What does that day about the value of life, that to save it most commandments can be set aside?
