This week Saul’s disobeying of God has resulted in him being rejected by God as king over Israel and a new king anointed to replace him. This king, King David, will also be far from a perfect king, but the difference will be in what the two kings do with their lives and their mistakes. Where Saul has been self-centered, David will be God-centered. Where Saul has made excuses for his sin and has tried to blame it on the people, David will confess his sin and repent of it. Neither man was perfect, far from it, but David tried to keep God first and confessed and repented of his sins.
