A Life Consumed by Envy (1 Samuel 20-23)

King Saul found himself in a sad situation. Forsaken by the Lord, by Samuel, by his son, and by the people. His only consolation was found in the death of David. Saul's own son, Jonathan, seems to have forgotten him as well. In his rage he kills the priests of the Lord (22:21). Things became so bad that David's only source of refuge was found in the Philistines. The lesson we can learn from Saul is the peril of comparison. Fix your eyes on Jesus not on other people.
