1 Samuel Bible

Never Hurt the LORD’s Anointed One

Today we will cover one of my favorite topics in our study of the life of David in his young years before becoming king. It is also is the most important of all the lessons we will learn from the life of David. We will learn a principle from David: “never hurt the LORD’s anointed one.” Our study of the life of David today is from 1 Samuel 24 and Psalm 142.

In the last chapter, we saw David barely escape from Saul because as Saul approached David, Saul received news that the Philistines were raiding Israel. Thus the Israelites needed Saul and his men to protect the city, so Saul and his men could not continue to pursue David and his men.
