1 Samuel 23:1 – 25:44
This mornings readings are a little strange. I find it hard to know what to make of David creeping up behind Saul and cutting of a corner of his robe. I can’t help myself thinking why didn’t David just kill him because he seems pretty happy to kill other people? I know David’s says how can he kill God’s annointed but God’s spirit has left Saul.
Anyway maybe part of the answer is that God just seems to be in complete control of the situation, protecting David and handing his enemy over to him. God has chosen his new King and he will be King – even Saul acknowledges that. But I find it hard to answer the key question this morning – how do these chapters point to Jesus?
