In chapter 9, David shows kindness to Saul’s grandson, Jonathon’s son, and in Chapter 10, David wants to show kindness to a young man who has just lost his father. This time the kindness of David will be rejected. His men will be humiliated and it will cause a war that will affect thousands. It is always good to be loving and kind in this world but don’t expect to get repaid with good. Do good expecting nothing in return and you will be a lot better off. Jesus came doing all the right things and the world hated him. Do all things as unto the Lord.
