Have you ever had an opportunity to get revenge on someone who had treated you very badly?  Most of us would jump at that kind of opportunity.  David again had a chance to kill Saul, but once again he did not harm the king.  “And David said to Abishai, Destroy him not; for who can put forth his hand against Jehovah’s anointed, and be guiltless?” (1 Samuel 26:9)  David made his share of mistakes in his life, but the love and respect he had for Jehovah God are evident in his responses to those mistakes.

Today’s reading: 1 Samuel 26-31
