A Humble Selfless Saul
When Saul was young before the power had gotten to him, he was a humble, selfless man. He was not seeking power nor was he angry with those who rejected him when the Lord gave it to him. How sad his end! Somehow he lost these qualities when he was given influence. I'm reminded of what George Washington said: "Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely." His downfall was that he feared man more than God. We see this as his life unfolds.
