June 19, 2024 – 1 Samuel 18:6-9

Now we begin to see a bit of jealousy develop in Saul. Saul really struggles with the relationships David develops and the people’s affection for David. Jealousy is so dangerous. Examine your heart today, study the root of your jealousy and ask God to restore your heart and show you how to heal relationships damaged by jealousy. God will make a way.

As they were coming home, when David returned from striking down the Philistine, the women came out of all the cities of Israel, singing and dancing, to meet King Saul, with tambourines, with songs of joy, and with musical instruments. And the women sang to one another as they celebrated,

“Saul has struck down his thousands,
    and David his ten thousands.”

And Saul was very angry, and this saying displeased him. He said, “They have ascribed to David ten thousands, and to me they have ascribed thousands, and what more can he have but the kingdom?” And Saul eyed David from that day on.
