leader lesson learned too late

1 Samuel 15

If you can get past the graphic violence in this chapter, you will read a leader lesson that Saul learned.  The people were under his charge. He had the responsibility under God to lead them on God’s mission.  His fear of the people led him to compromise the mission.  The LORD wanted to obliterate the Amalekites from the land.  The people wanted to win the battle – and keep the best of the spoils.  Saul knew that everything had to be devoted to destruction.  He caved in under people pressure, and lost his right to rule.

LORD, make our Christian leaders strong enough not to give in to people pressure – even when those people are us.
