Most of us have probably found ourselves staring at a screen debating whether or not to hit “send.” The message we’ve just written accurately, and quite passionately, describes how we feel. Yet in our hearts, we know hitting “send” is not what is best. While the message accurately describes how we feel, it also returns evil for evil, anger for anger, and harshness or harshness.
It’s hard at times to take the higher road. To not respond merely by our emotions. Yet God calls us to something better. In our continued journey through the book of 1 Samuel today, we see David battling his own emotions and hurt feelings. And we see God’s provision to save him from himself.
