Pr 28, Ps 15, 1 Sam 15

Pr 28

:9 He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination.

We must be careful of our attitude all the time if when we pray we want God to hear us.

:20 A faithful man shall abound with blessings; but he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be innocent.

Get rich quick scams were mentioned int the word of God. Sounds to good to be true? Then it probably is, and if you do it anyway, you can't claim innocence to God when it falls apart.

:24 Whoso robbeth his father or his mother, and saith, It is no transgression; the same is the companion of a deceiver.

Ps 15

:1 Lord, who shall abide in Thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in Thy holy hill?

:2 He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart.

Verse one asks the question and verse 2 answers.

1 Sam 15

Verses 1-6 has Saul reminded that the Lord had Samuel annoint him to be king. Then the Lord tells hm to go and destroy all of the Amalek and everything they own. Saul tells the Kenites to leave since they had shown kindness to the Israelites.

:7-9 Saul doesn't obey God, he takes Agag the king alive and also some livestock and anything that appeared good to him. That was against what God had told him to do.

:10-21 God tells Samuel He is sorry He made Saul king because he didn't obey. Samuel confronts Saul but Saul still doesn't understand he disobeyed God.

:22 Samuel says to obey is better than sacrifice.

:23 Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft and stubborness is as inquity and idolatry.

Wow that is some harsh comparisons.

:24 Saul finally admits he sinned because he feared men more then he feared God.

:25-29 Samuel tells Saul the Lord has rejected him and chosen someone else as king.

:30-33 Samuel calls for Agag and kills him as the Lord had commanded.

:34-35 Samuel didn't see Saul again till he died.
