We can see from Psalm that David’s life was full of challenges. He was sometimes even in the midst of friends and foes. “If an enemy were insulting me,…or a foe were rising against me,….But it is you, a man like myself, my companion, my close friend, -Psalm 55:12-13”. Yet, David did not only have an entirely blessed life but also became a role model of spiritual life and leadership for generations. “He ransoms me and keeps me safe from the battle waged against me, though many still oppose me. – Psalm 55:18” It brings hope and encouragement to those amid interpersonal conflict. The political interpretation of friends or foes: “There are no permanent friends and enemies,” is based on calculating interests. But David had the Lord’s perspective. He did not deny his partiality for friends (like Jonathan’s son Mephibosheth) and his hatred of rebels (like Joab the Marshal). David understood there was no good or bad in the Lord’s view. He sends rain on the righteous and the wicked as well. We have no right to judge if a person is better or worse than us. Jesus brought an order for us to follow: “You have heard the law that says, ‘Love your neighbor’ and hate your enemy. But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you!-Matthew 5:43-44.” Some conflicts can be resolved by reaching out to the enemy, and turning them into friends.
