By wisdom, a house is built up, and by discernment, it is made secure.—Prov. 24:3. Needing help, David’s men asked a wealthy Israelite named Nabal for a little food. They felt free to ask because they had been protecting Nabal’s flocks in the wilderness.
But selfish Nabal refused to give them anything. David became furious and intended to wipe out Nabal and every male in his household.
(1 Sam. 25:3-13, 22) However, Nabal’s wife, Abigail, was as discerning as she was beautiful. Showing great courage, she fell at David’s feet and urged him not to incur blood guilt by taking revenge.
She tactfully advised him to leave matters in Jehovah’s hands. Abigail’s humble words and discreet actions touched David’s heart.
He rightly concluded that Jehovah had sent her. (1 Sam. 25:23-28, 32-34) Abigail had cultivated qualities that made her useful to Jehovah.
Similarly, Christian sisters who develop tact and discernment can be used by Jehovah to build up their families and others in the congregation.
