Dodging Spears

Selected highlights from this sermon.

Spear throwers. Some may call them destroyers. They’re self-absorbed, and they’re out to make sure they look better than anyone else. Beware, they will hurt people to keep appearances up.

And they’re found at all levels of society. King Saul was a spear thrower. He didn’t like it when God said He was going to give His kingdom to someone else. Saul believed the kingdom was his, not God’s – and he wasn’t about to give it up for anything.

By going through this chapter in Saul’s life, Pastor Lutzer outlines the characteristics of a spear thrower and how to react to them. There are also lessons we can learn through David’s reaction to Saul’s threats on his life—and Christ’s example of the injustices He faced.
