Saul died because he was unfaithful to the Lord; he did not keep the word of the Lord and even consulted a medium for guidance, and did not inquire of the Lord. So the Lord put him to death and turned the kingdom over to David son of Jesse. (1 Chronicles 10:13-14 NIV)
사울이 죽은 것은 여호와께 범죄했기 때문이었다. 그는 여호와의 명령에 불순종하고 영매를 찾아다니면서도 여호와에게는 물어 보지 않았다. 그래서 여호와께서는 그를 죽이고 그의 나라를 이새의 아들 다윗에게 넘겨 주셨다. (역대상 10:13-14 Korean KLB)
Almighty God – eternally loving and merciful Father in heaven ~ shine the light of your love upon all people of this earth you created for our dwelling place. Thank you for this new day that arrives with fresh hope for success in life by learning and obeying your word. Give wisdom to all leaders of the various nations so that they will not reject the timeless wisdom contained in your word. Shame those leaders who refuse to look to your Son as the highest authority in this day and time. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
David Binkley, Sr. Gospel Minister
