A quick history of the three kings:
(from 1 & 2 Samuel, 1 Kings)
- Saul hid when it was time to be declared king, usurped the role of priest, was subject to mood swings and obsessed with killing David.
- David went from shepherd to fugitive to king without losing faith, poured his heart into his Psalms and was called “a man after God’s own heart.”
- Solomon asked God for wisdom yet foolishly tried to merge his own faith with the foreign beliefs of his many wives.
Whose heart do you have?
- all about self (Saul)
- all-in (David)
- always compromising (Solomon)
