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…
