The Sad Story of Saul. Often what we look for in a leader is not what God chooses in a leader. Humans look at appearance, one who seeks human affirmation, one who seeks his own honor, one who follows his own plans. We can learn from Saul’s life. Rationalizing our sins blocks God’s work in us. What are we looking for in a leader?
God looks for a person after God’s own heart: one who heeds God’s will, one who is concerned about his relationship with God, one who is willing to be used by God, and one who intentionally searches after God’s heart.
