Sh’mu’el said, “Does The LORD take as much pleasure in burnt offerings and sacrifices as in obeying what The LORD says? Surely obeying is better than sacrifice, and heeding orders than the fat of rams.
Sha’ul gave in to pressure from his men and failed to obey The LORD. He feared Men more than Heaven. May we learn from his folly and always fear Heaven more than Men so we can obey The LORD.
