I am amazed at David’s loyalty to the anointed position of Saul. Saul was an evil man, but David understood that he was God’s anointed and David took that seriously. David never laid a hand on Saul and protected him from the other men who wanted to kill him. He even avenged Saul’s death by taking the life of the Amalekite who claimed to kill Saul at his request. David honored the position and I find that fascinating and impressive. I’m not sure I could await God’s judgment on the person but David did and he is a great example for all of us when it come to our spiritual leaders or leaders God has appointed.
