Heavenly Father, thank You for the lessons that we can learn from the life and disobedience of king Saul who tried to justify his ungodly and rebellious ways. Help me to be like king David who was a man after God's own heart. Help me to eschew evil, trust You implicitly, and obey Your Word in spirit and in truth. Keep me low at the Cross and broken before You, and may I live to Your praise and glory in all I say and do. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
