Today's Verse from the New Living Translation
"The LORD gives his own reward for doing good and for being loyal, and I refused to kill you even when the LORD placed you in my power, for you are the LORD's anointed one."1 Samuel 26:23

Encouragement for Today

David experienced satisfaction, perhaps even joy, when he chose to do good rather than evil to Saul. He could've killed Saul, but he chose to trust God to deal with him (v. 9). He chose a clear conscience over the satisfaction of taking revenge or the relief of getting rid of the enemy who sought his life. When have you chosen the reward of doing the right thing over the path of personal gain? How can the sense of satisfaction and the reward of a clear conscience help you in the future when you're tempted?
