While you’re out it, check out the National High Five Project. The creators of this holiday also began the National High Five-a-thon to raise money for cancer research.
And for today’s verses . . . (drumroll, please): Biblical greetings, Nabal style and a la Abigail.
Nabal answered David’s servants, “Who is this David? Who is this son of Jesse? Many servants are breaking away from their masters these days. Why should I take my bread and water, and the meat I have slaughtered for my shearers, and give it to men coming from who knows where?”
1 Samuel 25:10-11
“Abigail lost no time. She took two hundred loaves of bread, two skins of wine, five dressed sheep, five seahs of roasted grain, a hundred cakes of raisins and two hundred cakes of pressed figs, and loaded them on donkeys. . . She fell at his feet and said: ‘My lord, let the blame be on me alone. Please let your servant speak to you; hear what your servant has to say.'”
1 Samuel 25:18, 24
