Family dysfunction is millennia old, and King David had no shortage of it. The snowball effect of his indiscretion with Bathsheba and murderous judgment on Uriah have led not just to a dark place, but a dangerous one. A powerful and enraged son may be his undoing. The horror of the scene with Amnon and Tamar seems a prelude to further mayhem and strife. Absalom is incensed and his father is to blame. While the details are likely different than the story of David and Absalom, family strife can dominate our lives at times.
