Saul continues his pursuit of David. Note:
- Standing by – Saul in his jealousy orders the execution of God’s priests who had earlier helped David. Saul’s servants refuse to carry out the orders. So Saul tells a foreigner to kill the priests, and Saul’s servants stand by while this foreigner commits murder. Do you think Saul’s servants are free from guilt? Do you stand by when you see injustice? What do you think you should do?
- Good for evil – Saul’s heart desire is to kill David (23:20), but when David has a chance to kill Saul, David refrains. What evil has been done to you that you need to repay with good? How might you do it? Ask God to help you.
