Saul's Jealousy and David's Success

Scripture: 1 Samuel 18

Topics: Identity, Jealousy

Saul is on the decline, and David is on the rise. While it is obvious that God is with David in whatever he does, Saul becomes increasingly fearful and jealous, attempting to hold tightly to his power, kingship, and recognition. As Jonathan humbly chooses to align himself with God and hand over his royalty to David, Saul continues to self-protect and find his value in his role of king.
