1 Samuel 13-15 (The Daily Walk Bible).
How different may things have turned out for Jephthah’s daughter if only there had been other people around! (Judges 11)
So why doesn’t God answer Saul’s inquiry (1 Samuel14:38) if what Jonathan did was okay? Technically Jonathan was guilty, but I believe that God allowed things to happen the way they did so that Saul’s shortcomings and foolishness would be on display to all.
1 Samuel 15:10 reminds us that our sin grieves God. God made mankind knowing that we would make him sorrowful. God chose Saul knowing that Saul would disappoint Him. God gives us His Spirit, knowing that we will grieve the Spirit that is within us (Ephesians 4:30). Let’s do our best to not disappoint our Lord and Savior!
