Humble grace!

1 Samuel 24:8–15 we see David giving an explanation to Saul for his decisions to cut his robe. he explanation. David and his men were safe in the cave, so David boldly stepped out to speak to Saul once the king had gone some distance away. Saul must have been shocked to hear the voice of his son-in-law! David explained that Saul was listening to lies (1 Samuel 24:9) and that he could have lost his life in the cave but for David’s kindness (1 Samuel 24:10–11).

The piece of the robe was evidence enough that David was telling the truth. David asked, “What are you chasing after? A dead dog? A single flea? May the Lord be judge and decide between you and me. May he take notice and plead my case and deliver me from you.”

What a gracious spirit God gave to David. What might happen if we were to have this same attitude toward our enemies today.
