Read 1 Samuel chapter 26


1 Samuel 26:9–But David said to Abishai, “Don’t destroy him! Who can lay a hand on the Lord’s anointed and be guiltless?”


Even though Saul was bent on destroying David, David still recognized the importance of Saul’s position. Because of David’s reverence for God and the holiness of God, David would not do anything to harm something that God had once set apart. Saul had been anointed by God as King and David knew and respected that, even though he didn’t trust the man. Do we hold the same respect for all that God has done in our life and in the lives of others?


Father, I pray that You will work through me today. Those people that You have placed in control and in position, I desire that You will work through them and bless them, even when I sometimes disagree with them. I want to honor You by the way I honor others.
