July 4 – 1 Samuel 22:6-10

July 4 – 1 Samuel 22:6-10

In typical fashion, here we see Saul in his fleshly, self-centered, cynical, self-absorbed and paranoid self.  

Similarly we can find ourselves wallowing in ‘self pity’.  So, how do we recognize and work to prevent times of self pity?  How do we become less of me and more of Thee?  Perhaps work to fully understand the magnitude of God’s love, stay in God’s Word,  surround yourself with positivity and seek to be full of gratitude.  

Now Saul heard that David was discovered, and the men who were with him. Saul was sitting at Gibeah under the tamarisk tree on the height with his spear in his hand, and all his servants were standing about him. And Saul said to his servants who stood about him, “Hear now, people of Benjamin; will the son of Jesse give every one of you fields and vineyards, will he make you all commanders of thousands and commanders of hundreds, that all of you have conspired against me? No one discloses to me when my son makes a covenant with the son of Jesse. None of you is sorry for me or discloses to me that my son has stirred up my servant against me, to lie in wait, as at this day.” Then answered Doeg the Edomite, who stood by the servants of Saul, “I saw the son of Jesse coming to Nob, to Ahimelech the son of Ahitub, 10 and he inquired of the Lord for him and gave him provisions and gave him the sword of Goliath the Philistine.”
