A snippet from Sunday's sermon
All is well for a while but then the wheels come off. Like I mentioned earlier, Saul kind of loses it at the end. He gets very paranoid that the powerful and popular David is after his kingship, as kings are prone to do, and so Saul plots to kill David. It doesn’t pan out and eventually Saul is killed in battle. Which of course creates a power vacuum and leaves a big ole division in the country between supporters of Saul and supporters of David.
Voices are raised, violence escalates, chaos, mayhem, and wars ensue. It almost sounds like they’ve come full circle from the days of the Judges when they were clamoring for a king to unite them all. And in many ways they very much have come full circle.
Some questions to ponder:
What tends to happen in a power vacuum?
Did the Israelites have hope for unity?
Have you ever been wrong about something?
What should you do with people you disagree with?
