Finished 1 Samual starting 2 Samual in my daily devotions. This is the record of the beginning of the transition between Saul & David. I notice David’s high regard for God’s annointed.

Makes me think of the balance between accepting church leaders as a fellow soldier of the cross and the proper respect of one called of God for special Christian service. We preachers have saught to be accepted as a fellow Christian, yet I believe that effort has some times backfired till we’re like the old comedian Rodney Dangerdield, “I don’t get no respect.”

It is a balance.  Even the New Testament challenges us to “respect our elders.”

It is not impossible to have both. We should always have a special respect for the things of God.   David did.
