David

Today's reading: 1 Samuel 25:1-44

Today is day three and our last day to look at 1 Samuel 25. As we focus in on David, we see something a little different than what we're accustomed to for this chosen man of God. David has been greatly insulted by Nabal, and his immediate response is anger and indignation. So much so that he has gathered together his men and is on his way to repay Nabal for his mistreatment of David with the intent of wiping out his household. Thankfully, his anger didn't blind him to receiving and then listening to Abigail (a woman in a male dominated culture). And, he not only listens to Abigail, he changes his mind about getting revenge on Nabal, and then thanks God for sending Abigail whose words stopped him from killing many innocent people.

What was the most important thing you noticed or learned from David in this passage? What specifically did this passage reveal to you about anger? Tami
