Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall. (1 Corinthians 10:12 KJV)
I have often pondered over the fact that persons who are strong in faith and wisdom end up failing God miserably. People like Solomon, Saul and David are just a few of the biblical characters who failed. Many of our contemporaries who seemed to have been icons of the faith experienced great failures. Looking at their failures warns us to take heed.
Take a look at Saul. We can read about him in the book of 1 Samuel, beginning with chapter 9. The bible says that Saul was a choice young man, and a goodly: and there was not among the children of Israel a goodlier person than he. Saul felt that he was not good enough to be king. He even hid when Samuel was ready to present him to the people. What happened to all those good qualities that Saul possessed in the beginning of his reign? We see nearing the end of his reign Saul became jealous, murderous and even rebellious against God. We see that Saul's end was quite different from his beginning.
