21 Saul answered, “But am I not a Benjamite, from the smallest tribe of Israel, and is not my clan the least of all the clans of the tribe of Benjamin? Why do you say such a thing to me?”
22 Then Samuel brought Saul and his servant into the hall and seated them at the head of those who were invited—about thirty in number. 23 Samuel said to the cook, “Bring the piece of meat I gave you, the one I told you to lay aside.”
24 So the cook took up the thigh with what was on it and set it in front of Saul. Samuel said, “Here is what has been kept for you. Eat, because it was set aside for you for this occasion from the time I said, ‘I have invited guests.’” And Saul dined with Samuel that day.
25 After they came down from the high place to the town, Samuel talked with Saul on the roof of his house.
Saul had been called by God and had a mission in his life, but he struggled constantly with jealousy, insecurity, arrogance, impulsiveness, and deceit. He never decided to become wholeheartedly a man of God and committed to God. Saul would not let God’s love give rest to his heart. Saul never became God’s man. Are you caught up in your character problems? Are you resisting God’s love? Allow God’s love to give you rest and become wholeheartedly one of his people.
