Love Instead of Revenge

I Sam 24:3-22

David could have taken revenge on Saul–instead he showed love, a desire for reconciliation. I was asked yesterday by “David” who when he is high can be vindicitive, cruel, why I never took revenge on him–and I simply said, “I never think about it–for I love you.” Love for me is not about “feeling”, but about an action of well being, so I love many people,even though I may have negative feelings. We are called to love our neighbors, as ourselves. Deo Gratias! Thanks be to God!
