If there was ever a scripture that was appropriate for me to internalize in my current situation, it is the tale of these chapters. David was married to Michal, the daughter of Saul. David was innocent of the charges that Saul leveled against him, but Saul trusted his own judgment and wisdom regardless of the veracity of the charges. As a result, David was damaged and ultimately separated from his wife.
Though David was charged falsely, and though David was separated from his wife, David still treated Saul appropriately and with justice and mercy. Nothing less would be appropriate from me.
