I Samuel 27:11 And David saved neither man nor woman alive, to bring tidings to Gath, saying, Lest they should tell on us, saying, So did David, and so will be his manner all the while he dwelleth in the country of the Philistines.
David was living in the land of the Philistines. He had them believing that he was one of them yet he constantly went out and killed their people and looted their villages.
I am not sure if he should have been in their country. Maybe his fear took over. It doesn’t matter because even in some of his darkest days he didn’t forget his mission. He was fighting for the good of God’s people.
Now when things aren’t going my way and I am down in the dumps I need to be careful to keep doing what I know is right. There is never a time to sit down. There is never a time to quit.
Let’s work till He comes to take us home!
