I wonder if Saul will be in heaven? Even yahoo answers does not know. I know it is for god to judge not me, but it’s interesting to think about his relationship with God.
His dance with his demons is a lot like the cycle of failure and forgiveness we are all in. David treats him with grace the way God treats us.
In this chapter David continues to be pursued like a criminal by Saul with murderous intent.
God is on David’s side, and he once again is given the opportunity to kill Saul or show mercy, chooses mercy, and Saul breaks down and begs forgiveness for foolishly and needlessly pursuing David.
He realises he is a sinner, is humble and asks forgiveness. But then he seems to wake up with hatred of David in his heart. Such a tortured guy.
But aren’t we all when it comes to sin.
