1 Samuel 13

Read 1 Samuel 13 – How could things go so poorly in a single chapter?  Saul leads with an immaturity that is staggering.   He summoned the fighting men,  selected 3000 and sent the rest home (13:2).  Why do you suppose he would do this when his next move was to go up against the Philistines?  Saul summoned Israel with the rams horn,  but when they saw the perilous situation,  they hid (13:6).  Then Saul takes matters into his own hands and pulls the blasphemous stunt of sacrificing the burnt offerings… only a priest was qualified to do this (13:19).  Have you ever overstepped and taken matters into your own hands that went beyond your responsibility? What happened? 🤦‍♀️🙅‍♂️🛑😭🛑🙅‍♀️🤦‍♂️
