Imagine if your Father-In-Law had tried to murder you with a spear…twice. In 1 Samuel 17 David asked what would be done for the man who killed Goliath and the reward was, in part, that the daughter of Saul would be given to him in marriage. After some time passes Saul makes good on that pledge and David marries his youngest daughter, Michal. The name David is derived from a Hebrew word meaning “beloved” or “loved one” and it is a fitting name because everyone, but Saul, seems to love David. As we will see this Sunday Michal, the daughter of Saul, is no exception. She will betray her Father by helping David escape when Saul tries again to kill him. Some folks have difficult, strained relationships with their in-laws, but this one has to take the cake. In Saul the name “David” conjures only feelings of anger, fear, and suspicion. I hope you’d consider listening in as we continue our study through the fascinating life of David as we unpack 1 Samuel 18:17-30 together.
