Outbursts are big news. People remember that “one moment” that you say the thing that you’ve probably been thinking for a VERY long time. Ask Kanye…or Joe Wilson…or Serena Williams. In fact, most of us probably weren’t thinking much about any of them…until they opened their mouths.
We’ve been talking about King Saul on Sunday mornings at actionchurch. He was the first king of Israel. He ruled for 42 years. The Bible says about Saul: “And wherever he turned, he was victorious. 48He performed great deeds and conquered the Amalekites, saving Israel from all those who had plundered them.” (1 Samuel 14:47-48) Three thousand years plus years later Saul is remembered more for his spear throwing outbursts aimed at David (and later his son Jonathon) than his bravery and success. Forty two years of successful leadership are completely overshadowed by a few “outbursts” of jealousy and anger.
