I Samuel 15:10-11 ” Then the Word of the Lord came to Samuel: ‘I am grieved that I have made Saul king, because he has turned away from Me and has not carried out My instructions.’ “

God’s instructions were clear…Go, attack the Amalekites and totally destroy everyone and everything that belongs to them. But Saul pridefully decided to disobey God’s words. When Samuel called him on it, Saul made the excuse that it was the soldiers, not him, who had spared the best of the sheep & cattle. Then trying to smooth things over, Saul said they had actually brought the livestock back in order to sacrifice them to the Lord. But Samuel saw through all of Saul’s flimsy excuses & total lack of personal responsibility…and offered up God’s judgment, “Because you have rejected the Word of the Lord, He has rejected you as king.”
