High Road

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: 1 Samuel 26

Once again, David chooses to take the high road by refusing to take Saul's life even though the opportunity presents itself and his army commander urges him to do so. Instead, as he had done before, David respectfully confronts Saul about his continued pursuit and wrongful intent and actions. Saul openly admits that he has sinned and asks David to return, but David wisely doesn't take action based on Saul's words. He continues to leave his situation fully in God's hands. I love the words we see in verses 23-24, where David points out that he has lived righteously and faithfully and then proclaims his trust in God for protection and deliverance.

How have you experienced God's blessing or reward for acting rightly and responding in faith? What does living with righteousness and faithfulness look like in your life right now? Tami

Oh Tami I needed this lesson today! It spoke to my heart!!

I know that I have been blessed many times in my life mainly because of God's love,grace and faithfulness!
I have done nothing to deserve all the good things that He has given me except when by faith ( even this was a God gift) I asked Him to be my Savior as a child.

I need to be more mindful and intentional in living a right-with-God life and be faithful to the Lord too.

Thank You,Lord for using this lesson from Your Word to speak to my heart!!

God bless you, Tami for being a blessing to so many including me!!
