“Looks Aren’t Everything”
1 Samuel 9: 2: “And he had a son whose name was Saul, a choice and handsome man, and there was not a more handsome person than he among the sons of Israel; from his shoulders and up he was taller than any of the people.” So Saul was handsome and tall. Great. If Israel had an NBA franchise, he would have been their man. Tall Saul could play ball. Unfortunately, they soon found out that, for all his sex appeal, he was highly insecure. And then he became angry, violently so. Then disobedient. So they were stuck with a tall, insecure, angry, disobedient king of their choice. But hey, he looked great in the team photo.
