Scripture(s): 1 Samuel 25:23-44
Description: David is on his way to Nabals house to massacre everone there when, suddenly a woman leading a large company meets him on his way, she gets off her mount and bows herself down to the ground before him, this is quite a surprise for David as Abigail was a woman of great status and so to see her humbling herself in this way is very odd. She asks David for mercy and to lay the blame on herself, she reminds David that he is the one who goes out and fights the Lord’s battles, this must have pricked Davids heart as he surely knew that what he was intending to do was not in the heart of the Lord, David by the grace of God realises what he is doing and departs praising the Lord for sending Abigail. Nabal on the other hand is totally unaware of what could have happened and is throwing a party when Abigail returns, the morning after she tells him of the previous days events and he is so shocked that he dies 10 days later. David sends fo Abigail and takes her and Ahinoam for his wives as Sauls daughter had been given to someone else.
