As a piece of sweet glistening fruit, A pomegranate abundant and full. Are thy temples filled with, The sweetness of God's word. Within thy locks Is knowledge, wisdom, and understanding.
And the people said unto Samuel, Who is he that said, Shall Saul reign over us? bring the men, that we may put them to death.1 Samuel 11:12
Dear Church and Friends,
We live in a very contentious time. The political climate is super-heated. However, this is not the first time such conditions existed among men. Just look at the passage I’ve suggested for our reading today and you’ll see a day long ago when the passions of men were politically charged.
The Children of Israel wanted a king and once the Lord saved Jabesh from the Ammonites by Saul’s hand they were certain that anyone who opposed Saul should be eliminated. Sound familiar?
Watch the video today for our devotion in 1 Samuel 11:12-15.
Music: Praise to the Lord, The Almighty by Passion Music.
Prayer Request: Please pray for the Madalinski Family.

Thy teeth are clean; As a flock of sheep, sheared, Which go up from the washing. God's Word makes them strong, Whereof every one beareth twins. And encourages the rest, There is not one barren among them.
Turn away thine eyes from me, Their attraction is strong. For they have overcome me, Like the cry for deliverance from Jabesh To save them from the wrong. Thy hair is flowing, As a flock of goats; Running down the hills, And into the dales. That appear from Gilead, The land of Nahash's defeat.
