Preface - Samuel dieth: David goeth to Paran. The characters of Nabal and Abigail. David sendeth a message to Nabal. Provoked by Nabal's churlish answer, he setteth forth to destroy him. Abigail is informed thereof: she meeteth David with a present, and entreateth his pardon. David blesseth God and her for so timely an interposition, and dismisseth her courtously. Nabal, stricken with her relation of the matter, dieth. David again blesseth God, and marrieth Abigail and Ahinoam. His wife Michal is given to Phalti.
1 Samuel 25
Preface - The Corinthians are reproved for bringing their controversies before heathen judges, which they ought to decide among themselves. There would be no occasion for lawsuits, if men acted up to the principles of the gospel, which exclude from the kingdom of God all notorious transgressors of the moral law. All lawful things are not expedient; but fornication is a gross offence against our bodies, which are members of Christ, temples of the Holy Ghost, and not our own to dispose of otherwise than to God's glory.

Robert Murray M'Cheyne - God Makes A Path - Daily Devotional Readings
He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young. - Isaiah 40 v 11
I shall never forget the story of a little girl in Belfast, in Ireland. She was at a Sabbath School, and gained a Bible as a prize for her good conduct. It became to her a treasure indeed. She was fed out of it. Her parents were wicked. She often read to them, but they became worse and worse. This broke Eliza's heart. She took to her bed and never rose again. She desired to see her teacher. When he came he said, 'You are not without a companion, my dear child,' taking up her Bible. 'No,' she replied -
'Precious Bible! what a treasure
Does the Word of God afford!
All I want for life or pleasure,
Food and med'cine, shield and sword.
Let the world account me poor,
Having this I ask no more.'
She had scarcely repeated the lines when she hung back her head and died. Beloved children, this is the way Jesus feeds His flock. He is a tender, constant, Almighty Shepherd. If you become His flock, He will feed you all the way to glory.
