1 Samuel

Read 1Samuel 11 – Saul’s first call to action. King Nahash of Ammon came against the region of Jabesh. The citizens willing offered a peace treaty, including to be servants of king Nahash. But the king required them to be marked with a gouged out eye as well. When word reached Saul, the Spirit of God came powerfully upon him (11:6). He rallied Israel and launched a surprise attack that left only a remnant (11:11). The army was ready for more, but Saul lead like a leader, gave glory to God and assembled Israel in Gilgal for a ceremony before the Lord. Saul is king, and all were filled with joy. God. King. Country. How perfect in reflection of Father’s Day. Men who lead well live surrendered to Jesus, they know when to channel their anger against injustice, and they know when to relent, giving glory to God. How do you face adversity? ☝️🤺🙇‍♀️❤🙇‍♂️🤺☝️
