Take a Tour

King Saul

Watch the video above and talk about it with your family. Learn more

Don’t be like King Saul who only kind of obeyed God.

Key Points:

  • God picked Saul to be Israel’s first king. 1 Samuel 10:1
  • King Saul obeyed God’s command. . . kind of.
  • God rejected Saul as king. 1 Samuel 15:17-21
  • Fully obeying is better than kind of obeying.

Memory Verse:

1 Samuel 15:22 Listen! Obedience is better than sacrifice…

Talk About It
  1. What’s your favorite part of the video? What’s one thing you learned from it?
  2. Create a list of excuses kids use for not doing chores or homework. How do the adults respond to those excuses?
  3. Who was Israel’s first king?
  4. How did Saul disobey God? What excuse did Saul give for disobeying?
  5. Read Joshua 1:8. Meditate just means to read and think. Why is it important to read the Bible? How does obeying the Bible help us?
  6. How will you apply this lesson to your life this week?

This is part of the Bible Storyline series.
