Two Extremes

I was reading 1 Samuel 22-24 today, and we run into two extremes.  first, we have Saul.  He was convinced David was his enemy, out to get him.  He pursued David to the exclusion of all else.  How many times do i get mad because I think a co-worker or customer or just anyone is mean to me?  I stew about it and go over and over it in my mind until I am bitter and unhappy.  then, we have David.  he could have killed Saul, but he spared his life.  Saul even said, “Who spares an enemy when he finds them?”  (paraphrase)  but David prayed for him and spared him.  I don’t know about you, but I want to be more like David rather than Saul.
