1 Samuel 31:1-13. This is one of the darkest chapters in the Bible. The death of Jonathan, the death of Saul, the despising of Israel and its God. The contrast between David and Saul is complete. The clashing of two kingdoms and the colliding of world views. Yet for those who prefer the honor of God over the honor of the world, we must remain steadfast, restrain self, and always retain hope.
