Read it!: I Samuel 22
From there David when to Mizpath in Moab and said to the king of Moab,
“Would you let my father and mother come and stay with you
until I learn what God will do for me?”
Think it through:
At this point in his life, David is on the run with a ragtag band of men who were “in distress or debt or discontent”—not so much followers of his but those unhappy with Saul. He’s moving from one place to the next, hiding from a king who wants to kill him. He knows the Lord has crowned him as the next King, but he’s not sure how or when that will come about.
