Don’t they sing about him during their dances: Saul has killed his thousands, but David his tens of thousands?” David took this to heart and became very afraid of King Achish of Gath, so he pretended to be insane in their presence. He acted like a madman around them, scribbling on the doors of the gate and letting saliva run down his beard. “Look! You can see the man is crazy,” Achish said to his servants, “Why did you bring him to me? Do I have such a shortage of crazy people that you brought this one to act crazy around me?

  1. Love it! Just had this revelation today with the kids. I had told my kids what we were doing with school. They all heard and responded back. My one daughter tried to antagonize, as big sisters do, and he started to cry thinking he wasn’t able to do his work. I said, “I’m the authority, I told you what to do. Why are you listening to someone else and letting them derail you?” Then it made me think of God, He is our authority, he has given of his word and guidance. Yet we choose to listen to others and be derailed. We start to whine like little kids. We just need to listen and rely on Him, not ourselves and others. I’m thankful for His grace and mercy!
