1 Samuel 15.1-16.23; John 8.1-20; Psalm 110.1-7; Proverbs 15.8-10
So how many of you parents had a moment of awareness as you read Saul describe to Samuel how well he obeyed. “I did EVERYTHING God asked me to … well, except for this and that and also that … but I still did what he asked!” Why did Saul have such a hard time grasping what obedience to God really looked like?
What is your reaction to hearing God say he was sorry he ever made Saul king?
What would you have done if you were in the place of Jesus and someone brought you a woman caught in adultery? Why do you think this is the case?
How would you describe a king or ruler who was a Godly person?
Does it surprise you that God detests the sacrifice of the wicked? What does this tell you about the importance of your heart as you “sacrifice” to him today?
