April 11 – Scripture of the Day

In today’s scripture, Samuel appoints Saul as King of Israel. And what was particularly interesting to me was after Samuel tells Saul, this is Saul’s reply in 1 Samuel 9:21, “Saul replied, “But I’m only from the tribe of Benjamin, the smallest tribe in Israel, and my family is the least important of all the families of that tribe! Why are you talking like this to me?”

Interesting that God has the habit of choosing the unlikely; the weak; the overlooked; the seemingly incapable to advance his Story of the world.

What’s God want to use you for?
