Read ! Samuel 13

United Kingdom

The united kingdom is a time in Israel’s history when the twelve tribes or clans of Israel were united under one king. This era was under the reigns of Saul, David and Solomon.

The events of chapters 9-11 tell of the appointment and early reign of King Saul. We now see the beginning of Saul’s downfall. Though he had started out as a reluctant and humble leader, his pride begins to overtake him. He does not follow God’s direction given to him through Samuel. The more he acts like a typical king, the less qualified he is in God’s eyes.

We value decisiveness, but God values when we seek him for guidance. We value action, but sometimes God wants us to wait on him.
