Hooves stopped in their tracks as reins tightened on the bridle and the assault came to a halt in a valley between two mountain peaks. A beautiful woman stood alone on the trail with food in hand. Abigail had come to intercept David and keep him and his men from slaughtering everyone in her household after her idiot husband had wrongly snubbed him. Abigail was a biblical heroine because she knew how to make peace. Like Christ, she took the fall and put the blame on herself. She apologized even though she wasn’t at fault, and her gracious, self-reproachful words saved lives. Listen to this positive message about how to be a hero for God in your life by knowing how and when to make peace.
