Living the Life together and sharing the unconditional love of Christ

Thursday June 7

2 Samuel 2 I love how David never assumes anything based on the circumstances.  He didn’t assume God had delivered Saul into his hands for him to kill the two times circumstances may had seemed to indicate that.  Here he didn’t assume that he should move back to his homeland just because Saul was now…

2 Samuel 1 David made a choice to act with love.  As David finds out that Saul is dead he could have celebrated and called attention to the evil acts of Saul and the judgement of God that was falling on him.  Instead, David chose to focus on the good.  In the description of love…

I Samuel 31 David again has an opportunity to kill Saul in Ch26 but refrains again. Then, understanding that Saul will continue to pursue him, he goes to live in enemy territory where Saul will not look for him.  Saul’s downward spiral continues.  With no reverence for the Lord, consumed with jealousy, tormented by evil…

I Samuel 24 All I can say about David here is “Wow!”. He is living on the run, moving from place to place, living in caves and wherever he can find a safe place. And he has done nothing wrong, nothing to justify King Saul pursuing him to kill him. He’s not sure who he…

I Samuel 17 We all know the story of David and Goliath.  The young shepherd boy kills the giant warrior with only his slingshot.  What happened that day is an exciting and inspiring story, but the 39 days leading up to that day were not good days for Israel.  Each of those days Goliath came…

I Samuel 15-16 There are several well-known phrases from these two chapters.  Ch 16 is the account of David being anointed king by Samuel.  In the process, Samuel sees Eliab who was obviously an impressive physical specimen because Samuel thinks “surely this is the guy”.  The Lord responds with “people look at the outward appearance,…

I Samuel 13-14 I spend a lot of time thinking about what could go wrong.  What if I try this and fail?  What if I believe God for that and it doesn’t happen?  What if I do ‘X’ and it causes ‘Y’?  Certainly it is wise to consider the possible consequences of our actions but…

I Samuel 3 Eli had his problems, especially when it came to raising his kids.  God was very displeased with the ways his sons were behaving and Eli was doing nothing to correct them.  He was certainly no model father but yet God had Hannah put young Samuel under his care to serve in the…
