Day 107

Today’s Reading – I Samuel Chapters 25-27

But David said to Abishai, “Don’t destroy him! Who can lay a hand on the LORD’s anointed and be guiltless? As surely as the LORD lives,” he said, “the LORD himself will strike him, or his time will come and he will die, or he will go into battle and perish.

I Samuel 26:9-10 NIV (public domain image)We often hear the phrase “taking justice into my own hands.”

In this instance we see someone who has the opportunity, but passes instead leaving justice to God.

In our lives, we so want the wicked and the evil to be punished.

David teaches us today to let go of our need for justice.

David teaches us that God’s justice will come – not always in our timing, but always in God’s perfect timing.

Let go of your feelings of judgement today.

Turn them over to God and wait upon His justice.

You have more important things to with your life.

Besides, as ye’ judge – so will ye’ be judged.

May God’s justice reign in your life and mine.


Tomorrow’s Reading – Psalms 17, 35, 54, and 63


I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
