1Samuel 22:21 And Abiathar shewed David that Saul had slain the LORD’S priests.
Saul so hates David that he will stop at nothing. His bitterness has so consumed his heart that it clouds all of his judgment. He tries to kill his own son with a spear.
But now worse than that he has the Lord’s priests killed. They knew nothing of the issue. They were innocent. They were not involved in the problem. 85 men are killed. They are holy men. Saul will stop at nothing because hatred has filled his heart.
The question for all of us is how much have we allowed hatred to fill our hearts? Has it clouded our judgment? Has it caused us to strike out at others who are not involved and are innocent?
The root of bitterness will spring up. It will contaminate many.
The best thing we can do today is to confess our own hurt and leave it in the Lord’s hands.
