3 Jonathan attacked the Philistine outpost at Geba, and the Philistines heard about it. Then Saul had the trumpet blown throughout the land and said, “Let the Hebrews hear!” 4 So all Israel heard the news: “Saul has attacked the Philistine outpost, and now Israel has become obnoxious to the Philistines.” And the people were summoned to join Saul at Gilgal.
Jonathan attacked and destroyed the Philistine outpost, but Saul took the credit. Saul’s growing pride started out small by taking credit for a battle his son had won. His pride would eventually grow into an ugly problem. It destroyed him and tore his family apart. If you notice pride taking a hold in your life, take immediate steps to put it in check by giving credit to those who deserve it.
