TODAY’S READING: 1 Samuel 24 / 1 Chronicles 8
1 Samuel 24:13 [ESV] As the proverb of the ancients says, Out of the wicked comes wickedness. But my hand shall not be against you.
This is one of those stories that you kind of got to wonder, what’s it doing in the Bible.
A private moment in the life of the King, exposed and yet there are lessons to be learned.
1] We never know who is going to see us doing something embarrassing and if or if not they will use it against us.
2] We never know just how close to death we may be.
3] We never know when we will get the chance to do right instead of evil.
4] We never know if we’ll do right
Listen to the ancients!
I may not have people chasing after me, wanting to kill me. But I’ve got to believe that there are people out there that would love to see me humiliated, hurt, or hindered.
Help me not to be like them.
