David vs Saul

Notes on 1 Samuel by Ivan Ho

1 June 2016

The rise of Saul


Both David and Saul had been called and anointed by God to be king of Israel. Both had the same spiritual father in Samuel. But the two had contrasting outcomes in their lives:

*David respected God’s anointed. Saul spent his whole life pursuing David and tried to kill him.

Two lives with similar calling and God given potential, but contrasting outcomes due to their different responses to God.

God has an awesome plan and purpose for you and I, but whether or not we end up fulfilling God’s purpose will be determined by how we respond to God and by the decisions and choices we make everyday.


I Samuel 15
