When David’s young men spoke to Nabal on his behalf in 1 Samuel 25:9-11, Nabal responded with conceit, questioning who David was and why he should offer his resources to strangers.
Proverbs 18:24 underscores the significance of having positive relationships, as our character plays a vital role in maintaining God’s grace in our lives. Poor etiquette can bring down even the most diligent and committed individuals, while good character can attract helpers and blessings, earn us a solid reputation, and bring the right people into our lives.
We must aspire to demonstrate good character in all our interactions. May God grant us the strength to lead peaceful and Christ-like lives that bring glory to His name.
