Continuing our study of the life of David as he faithfully follows a poor leader (which is Saul) we pick up the story with David leaving the city of Gath. While in Gath David barely escapes the king there by acting insane and drooling down his beard (1 Samuel 21:13).
In 1 Samuel chapter 22 David escapes to a cave where his brothers, relatives, and other men gather with him. The men who gathered with David are in some type of trouble or in debt or just unhappy with their life situation so they run to David to be with him. These men are not the perfect type of followers you want to have in your corner, but that is who David has.
