but Saul gave David’s wife Michal, Saul’s own daughter, to Palti, son of Laish, who was from Gallim. (1 Samuel 25:43)
Read and Ponder: 1 Samuel 25: 43
King Saul sees David as an escaped criminal. To punish David and Michal he gives Michal to another in marriage. Again, we see Michal used by the men in her life.
Question to Ponder:
- Do I let other people or circumstances have control over my response to my situation?
- Do I turn to God for help in dealing with my situation?
May God’s Love Embrace You,
