1 Samuel 31 records the end of the lives of King Saul and his sons, including Jonathan. It’s a tragic end that didn’t have to be. According to 1 Samuel 26:21, Saul chose to “play the fool” during his life, making up his own rules instead of obeying God’s wisdom. We don’t have to face death and eternity that way. We can choose to play well.
Start now by asking questions like these:
- Have I built my life on the foundation of a relationship with Jesus Christ?
- Have I played by the rules? Have I been obedient to God’s standards and will?
- Have I cultivated relationships and used my influence to impact eternity?
