// Read I Samuel 15:1-5 //
15 Samuel said to Saul, “I am the one the Lord sent to anoint you king over his people Israel; so listen now to the message from the Lord. 2 This is what theLord Almighty says: ‘I will punish the Amalekites for what they did to Israel when they waylaid them as they came up from Egypt. 3 Now go, attack the Amalekites and totally destroy[a] all that belongs to them. Do not spare them; put to death men and women, children and infants, cattle and sheep, camels and donkeys.’”
4 So Saul summoned the men and mustered them at Telaim—two hundred thousand foot soldiers and ten thousand from Judah. 5 Saul went to the city of Amalek and set an ambush in the ravine.
The essence of this charge is for you to be careful of what you are doing because it will become a problem for the generations to come. You can either leave a problem or solution to the generation to come.
The battle of the Amalekites in the days of Joshua that was postponed became assignment for Saul, the first King of Israel. When the Scripture says the children of Israel will inherit the land of Canaan, it is because Canaan was cursed by Noah when he beheld the nakedness of his father. Don’t leave an evil legacy, behave right.
PRAYER: Lord God, help me to behave right in Jesus name
