If you missed worship this past Sunday we looked at life choices, how we utilize the power we have been given. Our scripture was 1 Samuel 24:1-7, where David finds he has an opportunity to kill King Saul and put an end to his oppression and rise to his anointed place as King.
David chooses not to kill but grant mercy. Doing so he places himself and his men in harms way, but this choice foreshadows a Christ-like understanding of power. We have each been given some amount of power in this life. Some much more than others. How we choose to utilize that power is an indicator of how we see this world and choose to live out our faith. We can utilize our power to conquer our situation or we can utilize our power to grant mercy and love. It’s our choice.
