1 Samuel #7: Making Excuses for Sin?
Why did Saul fail as a king?
These were desperate times in Israel. Saul, instead of fearing the Lord, disobeyed the Lord.
Saul's story is a story of failure. Can we see the failures of Saul in our own hearts? He let the difficulties that surrounded him excuse his sin.
The passages today are a reminder of God's wrath and patience. Genuine repentance moves us closer to God.
God would not let His bigger plan be interrupted by Saul's failure.
