Some well-known stories in the Bible contrast wise people who make smart judgments with foolish people who make bad decisions. 1 Samuel 25 contains one of those stories. A man named Nabal has prospered and enjoys a good life, but he lacks judgment in dealing with the future king David and his mighty men. Nabal’s wife Abigail, on the other hand, is savvy and wise, and her quick action saves her husband, his family and his friends from a violent end. Abigail even assures a brighter future for herself than she could have imagined. LoAnn Fairman’s February 23 sermon uses the story of Nabal and Abigail to present a message on spiritual wisdom.
