|9:21||Saul does not understand the attention Samuel is giving him.|
|10:16||Saul did not tell his uncle he had been anointed king.|
|10:22||Saul hid by the baggage rather than be introduced as king.|
What happened? Although he seemingly started well, he finished incredibly poorly.
Instead of humble and overwhelmed, he became self-centered and entitled. The office became his focus, his identity, his hope. Not the Lord that placed him in that office.
Regardless of what the Lord does for us. Regardless of the opportunities He gives us. Regardless of the things He enables us to do for Him. It is He who is our focus, our identity, our hope. To begin to revel in what He enables us to do for Him, is to follow hard after Saul.
Not a good plan.
