He wouldn't do what he was supposed to do.
God told Samuel that Saul was to drive the Amalekites from Israel.
God told Samuel that Saul wasn't to take a single thing from them.
Samuel told Saul what God had commanded.
He told Saul that he was not to take anything from the Amalekites, not even their oxen.
Saul did drive the Amalekites from Israel.
Saul didn't obey God.
He took a man prisoner.
He took the best sheep, oxen and lambs and brought them back with him.
God was very unhappy with Saul.
God told Samuel that Saul had disobeyed him and he would remove him as king.
Samuel spent the whole night praying for Saul.
God told Samuel to go talk to Saul.
The next morning Samuel went to Saul to tell him what God had said.
When Saul saw Samuel, he said, "I have done as God asked of me."
Samuel said, "Then why do I hear oxen and sheep?"
Saul tried to blame everyone else.
He told more lies.
Samuel could take no more lies.
Samuel told Saul what God had said to him
Samuel said, "Because you have rejected the word of the Lord, he has rejected you from being king."
Saul was sad.
He can lie to people but he cant lie to God
Samuel was given another task by God.
Samuel was going to anoint another king.
God chose this king.
God chose David.
Samuel did as God asked.
He anointed David as the new king of Israel.
Samuel always did as God asked.
He never questioned God.
He never argued with God.
Samuel loved God.
God loved Samuel.
