Bible Material: I Samuel 14 through l~; 31. Devotional Beading: II Samuel 1:17-27. Tragic .... Failure [ I~umn for AprU I9, 1959 KING SAUL had the makings of success; but he failed. We must not exaggerate his failure, for there were some who remembered him with pride, and even named sons after him. The great Chris- tian apostle Paul had been named Saul by his family, for example. Nevertheless, as kings went, and especially when compared with the great King David, Saul miss- ed the mark. As we were saying last week, he was like a man with a good hand who plays badly and Dr. Foreman loses the game after all. What went wrong with him ? Voice of God At a time in his life when a throne would have seemed a fan- ~iful dream, the prophet Samuel had taken Saul secretly, and sol- emnly poured oil on his head, thus anointing him to be the future king of Israel. This was before the great battle of Jabesh that gave Saul his national reputation. Saul himself may not have taken Samuel's prediction seriously, be- cause he went on back to his farm- ing. But after the people voted him in as the first king, Saul would of course remember Samuel and the secret anointing and prophecy. There is no doubt that Saul was convinced that Samuel was a true prophet, that he spoke with the authority of God himself. Samuel was the one link with God that Saul had. He ha~l no Bible to study, no church to help him, and he himself was anything but a religious genius. David and others seem to have been able to understand. God's will by direct revelation: but for Saul, God's voice and will had to come to him through the prophet. The most serious element in Saul's failure was rigl~t here: he stopped caring what the voice of God said. He figured, perhaps, that since God had given him his start, he w0uld be bound to approve "~&tever he did. He was never more mistaken. God wants his ser- vants to succeed, but if they aim at the wrong, kind of success, or if they adopt wicked ways of attain- ing good goals, he withdraws his support. GOd is not going to work for and against himself at the same time, and he will noC encour- age men to do ao either. Voice of Self Saul made another mistake often made by strong men. It is worse than an ordinary mistake, it is a calamitous error, a sin that tears a man to pieces quickly. It is the sin of listening to his own desires and ambitions first of all "If I want it, It must be all right" is a silly remark. You would not believe people could be so foolish as to make it. You would not think that any one would set up his own Judgment above that of God; but many do, The way their mind works is familiar to all of us, be- cause we have all some time or other argued to ourselves just the same way. "L~ok," we say to our- selves, "of course I listen to the voice of God, and I used to hear him speaking in the Bible or in the Church. But lately I have come to believe that the Bible and the Church don't exactly strike my needs. I believe God will speak to me in my own thoUghts." (and more of the same.) You see what this does: tt either sets up one's own thoughts as better than God's, 3r else it identifies one's own thoughts with God's will, oioe of the Orowd The third mistake which Saul made was perhaps one of the most common, in our day or any time. It ~as letting the voice of the crowd speak for God. Pilate made that mistake, and so have countless others. But you can't get right and wrong figured out by arithmetic. What is right to do can never be found out by counting votes. And yet people keep on making that foolish blunder. They read in the Kinsey Report that certain sex sins are widely practiced among the people interviewed by the author: and leap to the conclusion that what so many people do must be right, And so they conclude that what so many people do can't be wrong. They never do ask the question: What does God have to say ? (Based on outlines eepyrlghted by the Division of Christian ]~ducntlon. National Council of the Churches of Christ in the U. 8. A.

ALL FOR THE CHURCH 'The Church is the greatest factor on earth for tl~e building of character and good citizenship. It is a storehouse of spiritual values. Witlmut a strong Church, neither democracy nor eivillzation can survive. There are four sound reasons why every person should attend services regularly and support the Church. They are: fl) For his own sake. (2) For his children's sake. (3) For the sake of his community and nation. (4) For the sake of the Church itself, which needs his moral and maler~al supporl. Plan lo go to church regularly and read your Bible daily.

That sudden transition from tears to a as a child reappraises the situation. Do we, when we grow up, lose that ability to em 'ge quickl completely from every crisis? ' Probably not! But our thinking processes become more comple consequently slower. It takes us sometimes days, weeks, even years, appraise a situation. But, significarrtly, one of the common effects of religious faith life of an individual is a marked increase in the ability to crisis and emerge from it happily. Those who are conscious of the and love of God seem to have an immediate source of courage and Observing this fact, the careless man thinks of the Church as s fuge in time of crisis.
