David And Saul

814 words, 4 pages

Intro Sample...


Scripture states Saul became angry and cried to the Lord all night, yet he was not to be found the next day for he was in Carmel busy with self adulation. Saul started out ok but forgot who’s kingdom it really was, he was self-serving (1 Sam 15:12) Saul erected a statue in his own honor. So why did God choose Saul if he knew he was going to fail? (H/W 263) God used Saul to bring temporary deliverance for Israel.
David on the other hand (1 Sam24:1, 20) personified more courage, enlightenment of heart than Saul could ever have, admitted Saul (1Sam24:17). One of the accounts in the scriptures which sets David apart from Saul is (1 Sam. 24, 26) David could have dispatched Saul, but chose not to because he was chosen by God. Even Jesus was described as the “Son of David”. David has a transparent love for God, he denied self adulation instead he sought Gods grace and forgiveness; he was conscience of his need for God.
(2 Sam.7, 08-16) "When your days are over and you rest with your fathers, I will rise up your offspring to succeed you, who will come from your own body, and I will establish his kingdom. 13He is the one who will build a house for my Name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever. 14I will be his father, and he shall be my son. 16Your house and your kingdom shall endure forever before me; your throne shall be established forever."
Try to comprehend the value of the covenant God established with King David on that day? Imagine God immortalizing you and yours through endless ages to come. God promised David, "Your house and your kingdom shall endure forever before me; your throne shall be established forever!"
God provides immortalization to the house of David probably since he was robust in faith, compared to Saul who was self idolizing, and followed the commands of God onl View More »

    There was no doubt about it, by most any standard Saul was good. In his letter to the Philippians, Paul describes himself likes this: if anyone else thinks he has reasons to put confidence in the flesh, I have more: circumcised on the eighth day, of the people of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of Hebrews; in regard to the law, a Pharisee; as for zeal, persecuting the church; as for legalistic righteousness, faultless. In short, Saul had all the credentials that you could ever ask for in a religious person. And he made sure that these principles by which he lived were enforced.

    Once upon a time, there was a prostitute called Maria. Wait a minute. 'Once upon a time' is how all the best children's stories begin and 'prostitute' is a word for adults. How can I start a book with this apparent contradiction? But since, at every moment of our lives, we all have one foot in a fairy tale and the other in the abyss, let's keep that beginning. Once upon a time, there was a prostitute called Maria. Like all prostitutes, she was born both innocent and a virgin, and, as an adolescent, she dreamed of meeting the man of her life (rich, handsome, intelligent), of getting married (
