1 Samuel 23

David saves an Israelite town from Philistines and Saul pursues David instead of fighting Philistines. Just as Saul is about to catch David, news comes to Saul that the Philistines have attacked again.  He wakes up and goes to fight his real enemy.

How this is about Jesus
He led by teaching instead of fighting, but the dynamic is the same.  While Pharisees and Sadducees led the people astray into error, compromise and legalism, Jesus gave them real bread.  The Pharisees and Sadducees pursue Him as a result, instead of turning to feed the people better.

Know your enemy.  Although there are weeds in the church or faithful families, avoid infighting whenever possible.  Don't make enemies of God's allies.
