1 Samuel 15:32-34

A difficult passage of scripture
Only a few short verses long
It won’t inspire much poetry
And wouldn’t make for a song

Saul disobeyed an order
And left Agag alive
The leader of Gods enemies
Still had a chance to thrive

Agag led people against Israel
On more than one occasion
He stood in the way of God revealed
Through a called out nation

God had given a response
For all Agag represented-
In order for the world to see Gods’ Love
Agag needed to be ended

What are the things we’re allowing
That God would command to die?
What keeps the world from seeing Him
When they see you and I?

So often we allow small things
Proclaiming Jesus is still Lord
But look, here comes Samuel now
Wielding the prophets’ sword…
