Story of David - Day 24

I Samuel 18:5-9 – “And David went out whithersoever Saul sent him, and behaved himself wisely: and Saul set him over the men of war, and he was accepted in the sight of all the people, and also in the sight of Saul's servants. And it came to pass as they came, when David was returned from the slaughter of the Philistine, that the women came out of all cities of Israel, singing and dancing, to meet king Saul, with tabrets, with joy, and with instruments of music. And the women answered one another as they played, and said, Saul hath slain his thousands, and David his ten thousands. And Saul was very wroth, and the saying displeased him; and he said, They have ascribed unto David ten thousands, and to me they have ascribed but thousands: and what can he have more but the kingdom? And Saul eyed David from that day and forward.”

The story of David and Saul teaches us about friendship and the dangers of jealousy. David's loyalty and success made people celebrate him, which triggered Saul's jealousy.

In life, we often see others excel, and it's easy to feel envious. But God's blessings aren't limited. Instead of being jealous, we should support and rejoice in our friends' successes. Real friends strengthen and bring joy to our lives. When we celebrate others, we build strong bonds that reflect God's love and bring blessings to us, too.
