Saul Promises to Preserve David’s Life

1 Samuel 19:1-7 NRSV

Saul heeded the voice of Jonathan; Saul swore, “As the Lord lives, he shall not be put to death.” 1 Samuel 19:6

Solomon’s intervention spared David from Saul’s wrath; and, God’s hand was in place to spare David’s life.

*On World Communion Sunday, let us pray for the unity of world leaders and their constituents, families fractured by injustice, and systems that have created cycles of inequity.
