Introduction to The Hollow

King Saul

1 Samuel 9:1-6

Physically, Saul was tall, good-looking, and strong, the kind of king people would admire. Even Samuel, with all his spiritual perception, got carried away when he saw him. Saul was obedient to his father and concerned about his father’s feelings, and he was persistent in wanting to obey his father’s will. To invest all that time and energy looking for the lost animals suggests that he wasn’t a quitter. There was a certain amount of modesty in Saul, but there was no indication of spiritual life.
