David is the picture of true humility in these chapters. David does not think about his own problems, weakness, stresses, frustrations, family, safety, comfort, or kingdom. David thinks and morns for 3 men that have driven him deep frustration. David is thinking more about these men, some might call them David’s’ enemy, than about himself or his own condition. This is humility. Not thinking less of yourself but thinking more of others, even others who drive you nuts and frustrate you. So put this in our terms. Humility is not self-pity or a self-lowering but an others focus and lifting up. Think of Jesus, in humility He came to earth of us. Jesus did not moan or talk about His human brokenness and frustrations. Rather he focus on saving and reconciling us back to God. He was focused only on us, never on himself. That is humility like David showed too.
