2 Samuel 12:24-25
After the death of their first son, David comforted his wife, Bathsheba. I’m sure they were both very sad and grieved their loss. However they later had a son. They named him ‘Solomon,’ which means ‘peace.’ I think they named him this because they had found peace (and forgiveness) from the loss of their son and their previous sins.
The Lord also sent word by the prophet Nathan that his name should be Jedidiah. ‘Jedidiah’ means ‘loved by the Lord.’ God was telling them that all was forgiven and that He loved not only their son, but David and Bathsheba as well!
We serve an amazing God! He loves us and wants to forgive us of our sins. All we have to do is ask. This doesn’t mean there won’t be consequences of our actions, but it will all be okay in the end and we can find peace again.
What does your name mean? David and Bathsheba picked their son’s name for what it meant. Why did your parents pick your name? Look up what it means.
