Be a Jonathan, not a Saul.

In this passage, the Israelites are facing tremendous odds as they battle the Philistines. But regardless of earthly resources, Jonathan displays tremendous faith in the Lord’s ability to provide the victory. From Jonathan, we see faith, initiative, and leadership. But from his father Saul, the king, we continue to see struggles with sin and a leader who is not putting God first.
