The Downfall of Israel’s King

Samuel_rebuke_Saul_H-roll-58Oh, how the mighty have fallen.

Saul had everything he could have ever imagined. He had the power, the wealth, the looks, and, above all that, he had the endorsement of God to be the king of Israel.

Yet he threw it all away. The way he tossed God’s blessings aside offers us some good lessons for our own lives. We don’t see Saul turn and say, “I hate God so I will rebel against him.” No, we see him say, “I am going to do what God want me to do today…but not quite all of it.”

Partial obedience equals disobedience. This is a key lesson for all of us to learn.
