A Stingy Man

David protected the flocks of Nabal, but when David needed something, Nabal refused to give, even questioning who David was, “Who is David, and who is the son of Jesse? There are many servants nowadays who break away each one from his master. Shall I then take my bread and my water and my meat that I have killed for my shearers, and give it to men when I do not know where they are from?” (1 Samuel 25:10, 11).
Nabal’s wife knew who David was, and all the trouble that had come upon him from Saul and that David would be king of Israel. Surely then Nabal knew who David was.
Nabal even hinted that he knew who David was by implying that he had broken away from his master Saul.
If we are stingy, we will find reasons that justify our stinginess. Do you do that?
