Scripture at Sunrise 5.26.2014

Sunday Evening| Pastor Steve Wainright | 1 Samuel 24:1-22
May the LORD therefore be judge and give sentence between me and you, and see to it and plead my cause and deliver me from your hand.” -1 Samuel 24:15

How do you respond when someone has done you wrong? Here, David had a chance to take Saul’s life, but realized that would be taking matters into his own hands. David realized that God’s kingdom is GOD’s kingdom–he knew that God was in control and Saul’s life was not for him to take.

It is not our duty to take vengeance into our own hands. Do good to those who persecute you. Kill them with kindness. God has called us to be peacemakers and render good for evil.
