30 Days in 1 Samuel 25, Day 28: Back to Nabal

So what has Nabal been up to all this time — while his wife hurries to save his life? Has he even noticed her absence? While she is gathering food for an army, riding a donkey toward who-knows-what, and appealing to her future king to put aside his murderous plans, what is Nabal doing? He’s getting drunk. The inspired author of this account doesn’t waste much time on Nabal at […]

30 Days in 1 Samuel 25, Day 25: Abigail’s Encouragement

First food. Then a beautiful woman at his feet. David, sword strapped to his side, stops, listens, and reconsiders. Abigail sees him soften. She keeps on talking and David keeps on listening. In my past readings of this chapter, I’ve always pictured Abigail rushing around gathering food, a bit panicky, and talking fast and a little more high-pitched than normal when she finally meets up with David. Maybe it’s because […]

Assignment: Pray for God’s guidance and direction as you study today. Then […]

30 Days in 1 Samuel 25, Day 17: The Young Man’s Report

The tension in this story of David and Nabal has been building. First we hear David send his humble request to Nabal, fully expecting Nabal to respond with gratitude and generosity. Then we find that Nabal doesn’t respond as expected, but instead insults and refuses David and his men. Next scene: “Every man strap on his sword!” Revenge is clearly on the horizon. But, says verse 14, one of the young […]
