1 Samuel 15:12 Early the next morning Samuel went to find Saul. Someone told him, “Saul went to the town of Carmel to set up a monument to himself; then he went on to Gilgal.” When Samuel finally found him, Saul greeted him cheerfully. “May the Lord bless you,” he said. “I have carried out the Lord’s command!” (NLT)

Dear Leader, If you erect monuments to yourself, you’re doing it wrong. 

Also, if you do God’s will your way, this too is wrong. 

Continuing along this same line, joyfully reporting on your half-measure obedience is also wrong, wrong, wrong. 

Worse yet, those things we leave undone have a way of coming back to bite us. Compare 1 Samuel 15:1-3 with 2 Samuel 1:1-8. The unfinished business of 1 Samuel 15 led to the disaster of 2 Samuel 1.

Trust GOD from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own.
Listen for GOD’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track.

Proverbs 3:5, 6 
The Message

I will do God’s will God’s way in God’s timing. 

Our Father, your will, your way, every night, and every day. Amen.
