Friday Week 2 Year 2

There are times we may realise that we are not merciful and loving enough. Sometimes, we demand justice at all costs, and when we have gotten justice, we may not be fully satisfied or happy.

Today's reading shows us that David's men wanted justice against Saul and they thought they had an excellent opportunity to claim justice and get rid of Saul. But David chose to be merciful to Saul, even though Saul was all out to destroy him. David even forbade his men from harming Saul in any way. This shows the uprightness and character of David.

Have we learnt to be merciful and loving? Or are we always demanding an eye for an eye? Some of us may have asked God to forgive us our trespasses, but we may fail to realise that we too need to forgive others who trespass against us. Let us strive and learn to be more loving and forgiving, for "An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind. (Mahatma Gandhi)"
