Our passage is [esvignore]1 Samuel 9:1-10:16[/esvignore]. This week’s message looks at leadership principles, and specifically, Saul’s leadership resume. Saul shows us several character flaws mixed in with some praise-worthy traits. Is Saul the embodiment of a good leader, or is Saul something else? God has chosen Saul because he is precisely the man Israel wants. We’ll see what men value in a leader differs from what God values in a leader.
