Today’s Reading: 1 Samuel 14:46 – 1 Samuel 15
Highlights – The end of chapter 14 describes Saul’s military endeavors against the Philistines and also tells about his family. In Chapter 15 God tells Saul to completely destroy the Amalekites. He does defeat the Amalekites but allows king Agag to live as well as some of the best sheep and oxen. God tells Samuel about Saul’s disobedience and Samuel confronts Saul and informs him a second time that he is being rejected as King.
Comparing 15:3 and 15:9 we see it was a simple case of disobedience. What was the real problem with Saul? What is hinted at in 15:12, 15:17, 15:30?
