Sunday Reflection (June 27, 2021)

Despite all the hardships King Saul had caused David, David had
kind words for King Saul. David was able to see the positive in King Saul
and what he had done for the Israelites (2 Samuel 1:1, 17-27).
Think about it: When someone has done us wrong, how difficult is it
to see their good side?
Psalm 130, attributed to David, reminds us of God’s graciousness to us 
despite our sins. In Christ, “God responds to us with grace and 
forgiveness rather than the wrath of God” (NIV Jesus Bible, alt.).
May we likewise respond with grace and forgiveness rather than wrath.
