Hello The Penn Speaks Family!
Today’s inspiration comes from I Samuel chapter 24. Indeed! One of the greatest fallacies man can make is assuming that having the ability and/or opportunity to do something means we should do it. For several chapters in the book of I Samuel, King Saul has been chasing after David, so he can kill him. After numerous close calls and God continuing to allow David to escape, God finally gives David an opportunity to seek revenge on King Saul. David literally has a God-given chance to kill him. God even tells him “Do as you see fit.” This was not an invitation to kill but a moment in which David’s true colors would show. Despite Saul seeking his life, David finds it in his heart to spare his. No wonder the Bible says that David was a man after God’s own heart. Do you have David’s kind of strength? When given a choice, do you have what it takes to make the Godly decision? May the Lord give us all that David kind of righteousness. May we all grow to be men and women after God’s own heart!
May we continue to grow spiritually in the Lord together. Until next time, have a blessed day!
