Love is courageous and caring towards those who will never say thanks

“I believe He wants us to love others so much that we go to extremes to help them.” - Francis
Chan (Crazy Love)
David didn’t kill Saul because it wasn’t his place
In moments of crisis, conflict and difficulties: Either you believe in God or you don’t!
God is God. We are not.
Therefore: Trust in God’s timing
Why two stories about David sparing Saul’s life?
Why did David go out of his way to create an opportunity to spare Saul’s life a second time?
1 Samuel 26:24 I valued your life today.
David was concerned for Saul
David didn’t go into the camp to kill Saul but to turn him back to God
David was concerned for Saul
David didn’t go into the camp to kill Saul but to turn him back to God
Enemies are more likely people close to us
Loving those we do not have relational harmony with
Chapter 24: David learned to spare his enemies
Chapter 26: David learned to love his enemies
Loving enemies: Caring enough to be courageous
1 Corinthians 13: Love not emotional feeling but opportunity to demonstrate care to someone we are not in relational harmony with
Abigail modeled courageous love to David (1 Samuel 25)
What is God calling you to do?
Who is God calling you to love
1 Samuel 26:23 The LORD rewards every man for his righteousness and faithfulness.
1 Samuel 26:23 Lord gives his own reward for doing good and for being loyal. NLT
Will you demonstrate COURAGEOUS LOVE?
