16When David had finished speaking these words to Saul, Saul said, “Is this your voice, my son David?” Saul lifted up his voice and wept. 17He said to David, “You are more righteous than I; for you have repaid me good, whereas I have repaid you evil. 18Today you have explained how you have dealt well with me, in that you did not kill me when the Lord put me into your hands. 19For who has ever found an enemy, and sent the enemy safely away? So may the Lord reward you with good for what you have done to me this day. 20Now I know that you shall surely be king, and that the kingdom of Israel shall be established in your hand. 21Swear to me therefore by the Lord that you will not cut off my descendants after me, and that you will not wipe out my name from my father’s house.” 22So David swore this to Saul. Then Saul went home; but David and his men went up to the stronghold. (1 Samuel 24:16-22, NRSV)
Saul was worried because he knew that God had anointed David to be the next king. He was worried about what would happen to his household. That didn’t make it right that Saul wanted to kill him, but we hear things and assume what comes next and that will always get us into trouble.
We need to talk to the source, and communicate what is happening and where we are in the process and discover the truth of the matter.
Communication will eliminate most issues in the world. If we will really communicate.
