Broken Radios

  • Saul said to Samuel, I have sinned, for I have transgressed the commandment of the LORD and your words, because I feared the people and obeyed their voice. 1 Samuel 15:24 ESV

    The Lord sent Saul on a mission, but he failed it because of his fear of man. For a short-term gain, he compromised the commands of the Lord and kept the best cattle, the sheep, and the enemy king as plunder. The Lord wanted them all destroyed as they were probably demon infested just like the swine in Gerasenes (Mark 5:13). After this, God moved on and anointed David. Where Saul was fearful and failed, David had faith and even faced Goliath.

    A mentor of mine worked at an electronics repair shop when he was young. He was told by his boss to replace a certain part on every radio that came through, whether it needed it or not because the part had a good markup. He silently ignored it and after a week the boss came back and asked him why he was not doing what they told him.

    He really needed this job, but he explained to them that he was a Christian and could not do that. He told them that he would understand if they needed to let him go, but he could not compromise on this. They became angry at first, but then later promoted him and gave him a key to the shop because they knew that he could be trusted.

    If you are given the chance to obey God or man, go with God. It will work out for your good regardless of what may happen. The fear of man is always a short-term gain, where Gods plan is for life.
