1 Samuel 21:6 “So the priest give to him the consecrated bread, since there is no bread except the bread of the Presence.”
Saul was trying to kill David.
David was going place to place and they need to eat. They were in need and David as a good leader took the initiative to ask for help. The priest helped the rule of that time wasn’t bigger than the urgency to help people and the priest gave the bread to David and his soldiers to eat.
We need to be ready o help those in need. We are not called to judge but to love. To love our neighbour not judging their acts but because it is God’s command.
We all sins in various ways, but love covers a multitude of sins as Jesus said. And Jesus is love. Never let the rules prevent us from loving, serving and helping a neighbour.
What a challenge! God please help us.
