Samuel: The Kingmaker – Saul The Bad

Play Audio

Some people seem to get all the breaks, while others seem to struggle through life.  Some people seem to manage difficulty with ease, while others crumble under the pressure.

Today, we will examine that part of Saul’s character that seemed to cause him to fail over and over again.  Today we will consider Saul, the Bad – his moral failures his bad decisions, and his slow decline into hopelessness.

As we consider Saul, let us also consider ourselves and ask, “Where does our strength come from?  Where is our hope in times of despair?”  It is my hope, that we all look to Christ the author and finisher of our salvation as our hope and our strength.


Where does my help come from?  My help comes from the Lord. Ps 121:1
