High Road

Today's reading: 1 Samuel 26:1-25

Once again, David chooses to take the high road refusing to take Saul's life even though the opportunity presents itself. Instead, David, as he had done before, respectfully confronts Saul about his continued pursuit and wrongful intent toward David. Saul then openly admits that he has sinned and asks David to return, but David doesn't take action based on Saul's words. He continues to leave his situation 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 asks God for protection and deliverance.

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