When People Say Evil Things About You

Read the Bible in a year by reading First Samuel 19-21 today.
Saul was determined to kill David. Saul sought for David at his home, but he had fled with his wife’s help, who was also the daughter of Saul. He confronted her about helping David. Here is what happened, “Then Saul said to Michal, ‘Why have you deceived me like this, and sent my enemy away, so that he has escaped?’ And Michal answered Saul, ‘He said to me, “Let me go! Why should I kill you?”‘”(1Samuel 19:17). She flat-out lied to her father. David never said anything such thing, nor would he have. She loved him, but then, perhaps out of fear, she lied
about him to save her own skin.
That will happen to us. People who are our friends, perhaps even our family, will say things about us that we never would have imagined they would say. Not that everyone will do that, but there may come a time when it does, but be like David. He did not take it out on her, nor did he waste his time trying to prove her a liar.
