What happened to David's family at Ziklag?
Did David pursue the captors?
How did Saul die?
LESSON: Saul's life teaches us that those who live by the sword die by the sword. He was God's anointed, but he did not do right. God in His own time took care of Saul.
PRAYER: My Father, may I walk honestly before my fellow man and to seek Your will in my life. Amen
FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS
After a woman sued a fast-food restaurant for being burned by hot coffee, companies began issuing more warning labels. Check out these instructions:
On a frozen dinner: DEFROST BEFORE EATING
On an iron: DO NOT IRON CLOTHES ON BODY
On a peanut butter jar: MAY CONTAIN PEANUTS
On a milk bottle cap: KEEP UPRIGHT AFTER OPENING
If people need these obvious instructions on household items, think how much more we need God's direction. Psalm 119 tells of the importance of following the Lord's manual, the Bible. The Psalmist instructs us as follows: "The entrance of God's words give light; His word gives understanding to the simple." Scripture is meant to give us protection, correction, guidance and God's perfect peace, regardless of our circumstances. Pray and seek the Lord to teach you His statutes and to direct your steps according to His word. Then read the Bible often and follow His instructions!
