    Based on Saul’s partial obedience in destroying the Amalekites we look at the causes and consequences of disobedience in our own lives. God expects total obedience. Partial obedience is equivalent to disobedience.

The hardening of his heart and his casual attitude to the sin of partial obedience caused him to be rejected as King. He lost his kingdom and eventually lost his life. As we analyze the reasons ...read more

    based on 7 ratings
     | 3,536 views

    God gave Saul an instruction but Saul only half-carried it out. This short homily is a challenge to us: Let’s do all that God asks us to do; nothing more AND nothing less!
