I should have a blog called "strange things in the Bible", where I could just write about the hilarious and weird things I read about every day. Because I think they are fantastic.
Today's reading is found in I Samuel 21:13
"So he pretended to be insane in their presence; and while he was in their hands he acted like a madman, making marks on the doors of the gate and letting saliva run down his beard."
Yeah, David would have made a great spy, right? He knew a thing or two about improvising to preserve one's life. I know it's pretty serious, but it cracks me up every time. Sorry, Dave.
