1 Samuel 18-20

Saul against David

  1. Saul has slain his thousands ...
  2. Reaction: Angry, galled, jealous
  3. Tormented despite David’s music

    Once the people praise David, Saul loses his cool and his graciousness.
    He is troubled by the evil spirit even though David is ministering to him through music.

Another Truce? – 1 Samuel 20

Flight or Fight

A House Divided – Psalm 55

  1. If an enemy were insulting me,
    I could endure it;
    if a foe were raising himself against me,
    I could hide from him.
  2. But it is you, a man like myself,
    my companion, my close friend,
  3. with whom I once enjoyed sweet fellowship as we walked with the throng at the house of God.
