1 Samuel 25 – Kept From Bloodshed
"Do not repay evil for evil. Live at peace with everyone. Don't take revenge." Paul wrote these words to the Christians in Rome, but they could just as well apply 1000 years earlier to David as he responds to wounded pride with murderous revenge. Only the wise and decisive intervention of Abigail prevents disaster. Reflecting on this text helps us understand how to deal with our own anger.
