Thought For Today: “Take the High Road”
When you “take the high road,” it means doing the right thing, even when it’s not popular. It means taking the correct path even if it’s not the easiest.
This was the path David took, even when another path would have made more sense. When David had the opportunity to kill King Saul, instead he chose the high road, because while Samuel had anointed David as king, Saul was still the anointed king of Israel, and it wasn’t David’s job to take him down, but God’s.
Even when Saul was hell bent on killing David, David took the high road.
“The Lord forbid that I should do this thing to my master, the Lord’s anointed, to stretch out my hand against him, seeing he is the anointed of the Lord.” (1 Samuel 24:7)
When faced with difficult decisions always remember to take the high road, that is, take the road less traveled and do the right thing instead of the easiest or what we want to do.
To Saul, David said, “May the Lord repay every man for his righteousness and his faithfulness, for the Lord delivered you into my hand today, but I would not stretch out my hand against the Lord’s anointed.” (1 Samuel 26:23)
