  • What God’s Word says about it:
    • 17Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody.
    • 18If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. (Romans 12:17-18)

  • 19Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord. (Romans 12:19)

Conclusion

  • David chose to do what was right in the sight of God, not men.

7When a man’s ways are pleasing to the LORD, he makes even his enemies live at peace with him. (Proverbs 16:7)

  • What can we learn from this event in the life of David?
the life of david part 528
“The Life of David - Part 5”

1. Since man has vices; expect to be mistreated.

2. Since mistreatment is inevitable; anticipate feelings of revenge.

3. Since revenge is predictable; purpose to act biblically and not carnally.
