Passively Aggressive

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: 1 Samuel 18:17-30

Saul continues down the dangerous path of jealousy concerning David. Rather than overtly trying to kill David like he did previously with his spear (vs. 11), Saul has now chosen to take a different tactic--a passive-aggressive approach. So we see Saul scheming, planning and putting in place the pieces he thinks are needed for David's demise by the hands of the Philistines. It's a sad scenario that provides us with a vivid display of how sin degrades our thinking and actions when we choose to turn away from God. And making things even worse, our sinful choices don't just impact us, they affect and influence those around us as well.

What do Saul's thoughts and actions show us about the progression of unchecked sin and specifically jealousy? What impact does Saul's sin have on those around him? What's an example from your past of how your sin impacted someone else negatively? Tami
