I will not raise my hand against my lord. He is the Lord’s anointed.
I Samuel 24:8
David, pursued to the limits by Saul, will not avail himself of the opportunity to take vengeance. Regardless of his actions, Saul is the king and his office must be respected. In our world where all becomes personal, we have to ask if such nobility still exists. Are we capable of distinguishing between office and office-holder?
May we try walking in an opponent’s shoes today to see if there are not areas where we agree.
