In 1 Samuel 16, a “tormented” King Saul is refreshed by the music and company of a young musician — David. Saul’s ascent to the throne wasn’t what he saw coming in his life, and it appears as if Saul is now lonely at the top and gripped by some sort of darkness. From that place, it’s connection with David that makes him feel better. We are wired for connection, and in this story we are reminded of the power of relationships built on trust, vulnerability and love.
