I Samuel 9:15-21
Israel's sin was not in wanting a king, but in rejecting the authority of God.
Qualifications for Saul to be king (and for anyone to be used of God)
1. Industry (9:3-6)
There is no such thing as an unimportant job if it is being done to honor the Lord.
2. Humility (9:21)
The best workers for God are the most humble of people.
3. Transformation (10:9)
All that matters is that you have a heart that has been changed by God.
4. Good Company (10:26-27)
Don't allow yourself to be influenced by those who do not walk with the Lord.
5. Forgiving Spirit (11:12-13)
Without forgiveness, your service is limited and your testimony is damaged.
