1 Samuel 27

~The enemy of my enemy is my friend.
~Pretend inferiority and encourage his arrogance.
~All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when we are able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must appear inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near.
~Engage people with what they expect; it is what they are able to discern and confirms their projections. It settles them into predictable patterns of response, occupying their minds while you wait for the extraordinary moment — that which they cannot anticipate.
(Art of War, Sun Tzu – 6th century, BC)
I think Dave probably taught him a thing or two.

Thank You Lord, that You have given us all gifts and opportunities to use them for the advancement of Your Kingdom. May I be faithful with what You have given me to steward. And bring glory to Your Name.
