A king that would rather die than be taken captive is a proud man. You cannot understand your earthly circumstances, until you realize your heavenly dwelling. God had made Saul’s path to Him and heaven clear, but unfortunately, Saul avoided it. The end happened on Mount Gilboa. In 1 Samuel 31, we learn of the demise of the first king of Israel. King Saul, the people’s choice, was full of pride, fear and jealousy at the end of his life. He was still a young man, but throughout his life Saul proved that he did not believe that God would treat him well if he yielded to the LORD. There are many people like that in today’s world – a world that is turned upside down because of sin. “Missing the mark” is a definition of one of the words used for sin. When we miss the mark, we fail to realize that God desires to heal us and help us – this failure is demonstrated in the tragic life of Saul.
