TITLE: The Better Man

SCRIPTURE: 1 Samuel 24:1-7




David was anointed to become King (1 Samuel 16:13). The only thing standing in his way was King Saul. Saul was a petty, jealous, vindictive, hateful man trying to kill David. Even though wronged, when David had a clear shot to kill King Saul, David refused.


Lessons from David’s Example:


  • Tables turn. We never know whom we may need.


  • God can take care of anybody and everybody (Romans 12:18-21).


  • When you are blessed by God, there is no need to hate and retaliate.


  • Nothing and no one can stop what God has for us.



  • Describe when someone acted unkindly toward you and you responded 1) unkindly (2) kindly.  How did each turnout?


  • Describe a situation when tables turned and someone who was unkind to you needed you. Vice versa.

  • Is there anyone who has wronged you that you struggled to forgive? How can or did you forgive?
