the right man

1 Samuel 10:17-11:15

Perhaps if some look closely at this account they will find early chinks in Saul’s armor, but I see no major fault in his actions.  He is the king that the people asked for.  In fact, I find him to be quite considerate and humble here – two traits that he loses as the years go by.  Perhaps one lesson we should learn from this is that a leader in the wrong position might end up losing character instead of gaining it.

LORD, send us your servants for our leaders.  May we not settle for people who just appear to qualify.
