Share a verse from your Bible reading today: 1 Samuel 13:14; cf. Acts 13:21-22.
“But now your kingdom shall not continue. The Lord has sought for Himself a man after His own heart, and the Lord has commanded him to be commander over His people, because you have not kept what the Lord commanded you.”
The difference between David and Saul, was simply their attitude of heart – David’s heart was humble and contrite, whereas Saul’s heart was a self-centered heart, never thinking about anyone but self. We too can be a man or woman after God’s own heart, if we will display an humble and contrite heart, desirous of being fully obedient to His will (Psalm 51:17; Matthew 7:21).
