A LETTER TO DAVID FROM KING SAUL
Dear David Son of Jesse
My attention is drawn to your recent spectacular victory against the Philistine giant Goliath. On behalf of the entire leadership of Israel allow me to sincerely apologize for underestimating your ability to defeat this enemy of Israel who had openly intimated the entire army for 40 days and nights.
We are still in awe of your exceptional faith in God and meticulous creativity that enabled you kill Goliath with a simple shepherd sling. My military commanders are in serious discussion on how to in future incorporate your new found skills in our national army fighting strategy. David, you’ve done as proud.
Having said that I wanted you to know of my decision to recruit you in my Jerusalem Palace Choir as my personal entertainment manager. Many have attested of your singing and playing of the cymbal as you took care of your father’s sheep in the wilderness something which l want to experience as a king.
As you join my team, I want to assure you that I will do all that is necessary to help you reach higher heights in sharpening your talent as a giant killer, singer and worshiper of true God.
Finally my son, you need to know that am a spear throwing king hence don’t be surprised when you see me practicing at the palace. It’s part of my lifestyle and way of unwinding.
That being said I look forward to seeing you soon son of Jesse the giant killer.
The one and Only King of Israel - King Saul -
Dear King Saul
Shalom my King and hope this finds you well. I write in response to a recent incident that has left me asking so many answered questions. As your son am still in shock concerning your attempt to kill me using a spear the other day. Were it not for my dodging skills I would be dead by now. As I recall, I know I was in a quite good position to throw the spear back but the fear of God in me has always reminded me “ touch not the anointed one of God”.
You know in two incident where I was in position to strike you but the Lord would not allow me to that for whatever a man soweth that will he reap.
Remember also I am a firm believer of the song, weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning hence I will not revenge.
Finally be assured of my loyalty to you until the fullness of time of God’s promotion comes .
David – in the cave
