01-24-20 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

January 24, 2020
(St. Francis de Sales, Bishop and Doctor of the Church)
After David spared King Saul’s life, while Saul was in hot pursuit to kill David, Saul then said to David: “You are in the right rather than I; you have treated me generously, while I have done you harm. Great is the generosity you showed me today, when the LORD delivered me into your grasp and you did not kill me. For if a man meets his enemy, does he send him away unharmed?  May the LORD reward you generously for what you have done this day. And now, I know that you shall surely be king and that sovereignty over Israel shall come into your possession.”   1_Sm_24:3-21

Sometimes, beloved, moral righteousness DOES have it’s rewards, especially when all the credit goes to the LORD.  David was not quite done with the schizophrenia of Saul’s moods, as Saul relentlessly pursued him.  And yet, the king, David did become.  And in his reign, he would be tested constantly by the world and by the Lord, with failures and successes.  But in the end, that promise of the Lord’s would absolutely come about: a descendant of David’s would reign in a kingdom which will last eternally.  THIS is our Jesus.  And His kingdom can be ours as well, if we so choose.
