If someone were pursuing you intending to kill you, for no good reason, how would you respond if an opportunity arose to take revenge? How would you respond if your pursuer was killed?
David was pursued by a deranged King Saul. And although David had several opportunities to take Saul’s life, he resisted, knowing that Saul was anointed by God to be King of Israel.
David was a class act, someone who exhibited outstanding character and virtues. No matter how desperate the situation, he refused to take matters into his own hand. Instead, he obeyed and trusted God, allowing Him to deal with all situations and outcomes. When Saul met his death in battle with the Philistines, David showed grace and extended a hand of peace and protection to Saul’s family. In his eulogy, he praised both Saul and his son, Jonathan, proclaiming their virtues, not once hinting at the pain and suffering he endured.
How the mighty have fallen in the midst of the battle!
2 Samuel 1:25
David was a man after God’s own heart. He was a class act by showing the character and nature of God.
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, then you can begin to experience the matchless beauty and majesty of God’s character in your life.
Be a class act!
Love and trust the Lord; seek His will in your life.
