- 1 Samuel 15:17
- Sometimes we’re in a role that will take us time to catch up to mentally.
- Saul went by what he saw instead of what he heard.
- God will take things out of your life while you’re still trying to hold onto it.
- Did you even want in the first place what you are losing now?
- Your burden may seem small to others because they have no idea how big it is.
