Good vs. Evil

Do you turn the other cheek? Do you remember to be the bigger person?

It's hard to be good, sometimes...isn't it?

Is it just me or sometimes do you just want to say wait just a minute!!!

Or even something worse?

In my reading today David showed us the right way to go..He spared Saul's life. He had the opportunity to kill him in the cave, even encouraged by his men to do so, but he couldn't do it. Saul didn't even know he was there. It was in a cave it was dark and David got close enough to cut a piece of his robe off and Saul didn't know it.

Not until they were both outside in the light...David hollered and told him Why do you listen to those who say I want to harm you? See for yourself that it isn't true.
I would never harm the king.

Saul began to cry and answered him with you are a better man than I. He made David promise to not harm his family when he was gone and David promised. I wonder how they both felt when the encounter was over.

Do you think Saul felt relief or anguish for his actions? Do you think that he truly might have felt regret realizing that David could have killed him?

It is better to way on the side of good and turn the other cheek, but it isn't always easy is it?

Trying to turn the cheek,
