“For we must needs die, and are as water spilt on the ground, which cannot be gathered up again; neither doth God respect any person: yet doth he devise means, that his banished be not expelled from him.”
King James Version (KJV)

Take no thought You'll have to explain the point your trying to communicate a little better.

King David is reluctant to disapline Absalom because David knows that it is his neglect in disaplining Ammon for raping Absalom's sister Tamar that has caused all this trouble . Poor Tamar , no one seems to have a care for her except her brother Absalom , he and David know that Amnon should have been put to death for what he did to Tamar . David's failure to respect God's law and his own daughter have given occasion for Absalom to speak against him . All of Israel must have been thinking to themselves some thing like : doesn't God's laws apply to us all ? Why should Amnon get away with such a terrible thing ? Absalom now has ammunition against his father , but it's his father's own fault , and David knows it is his own fault .

In the flesh I have nothing good to offer my Lord. But the Scriptures show, guide, and remind me my shorts comings in order for me to be "right" before God.
I can under stand David's reluctance to correct Absalom for his actions. Maybe David believes that time will heal everything. Provers 29:15. Not realizing that in- action does not solve anything and makes it more difficult to correct future situations.
Because of our in-action in the past we have lost the privilege to pray, and read the Bible in our school and in public places. We are not allowed to invoke the name of our Lord Jesus Christ or quote Scripture in the public arena. Copies of the Ten Commandments can not be displayed in Public areas. Nativity scenes have been banned in many public areas.
In times past, our halls of justice and legislature echoed the Words of wisdom of our God in prayer in speeches, and discussions.
However, our God promises a return of His glory, and healing if we call on Him, 2 Chronicles 7:14, 15. Malachi 4:2; Matthew 9:35
Let us go forward as an Army of the Lord, in loving kindness reaching to all who are in need. 1 Corinthians 13 : 1-7.
God bless all the brethren in this time of affliction as we await the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
