We Are Called
Dear sisters and brothers in Christ Jesus, King Saul pursued David into the desert of Ziph out of fear that David’s popularity had exceeded his own. He feared that his kingship was in danger if David grew more popular, more beloved of the people. He was relying on the peoples’ opinions to determine the strength of his kingship. This reveals the weakness of King Saul’s faith. His kingship was a gift from God—a responsibility placed upon his shoulders by divine anointing!
