Soothing the Savage Beast (1 Samuel 16:13-23)

In this episode, we find that David's music has the power to soothe the savage beast (King Saul).  Except, there's something deeper that brings peace, hope, purpose and strength.  Something David has, and Saul does not.  That's where the soothing happens.

We also have a lengthy discussion about mental health.  Saul is clearly suffering from some sort of mental illness, and the passage makes it clear that God is tormenting Saul with these evil spirits.  Is this how we are to understand all mental illness?  Is there a place in the Kingdom and the Body of Christ for mentally ill individuals?  Absolutely.  Join the conversation.
