Today’s Reading: 1 Samuel 22:1‐23:29, John 10:1‐21, Psalm 115:1‐18, Proverbs 15:18‐19
1 Samuel 22:1-2 David departed from there and escaped to the cave of Adullam. And when his brothers and all his father’s house heard it, they went down there to him. And everyone who was in distress, and everyone who was in debt, and everyone who was bitter in soul, gathered to him. And he became captain over them. And there were with him about four hundred men.
I was reminded in my reading today that David’s followers and friends were very needy. If we are surrounded by people that think and look like they have it all together, we may be doing something wrong. Jesus was known as someone who spent time with the tax collectors and sinners.
Apply: I want to remember to spend more time with the needy.
