1 Samuel 29-31

Men Behaving Badly: on a single day

In a time of transition from Theocracy to Monarchy, the books of Samuel might well be called ‘Men Behaving Badly.’ While there are occasional bright spots, time and again we see the failures of leadership and compromised faithfulness, with all their consequences. In 1 Samuel 29-31 we see how suddenly God’s judgment can fall and his vindication can rise– even on a single day.
