Another example is when Saul clearly
disobeyed God by sparing
the Amalekite animals in 1 Samuel 15.
After being confronted by Samuel, listen to
the excuse Saul gives
for disobeying God's command.
"The soldiers took
the best sheep and cattle to sacrifice to the Lord your God at
Gilgal."But Samuel answered,"What pleases the
Lord more:burnt offerings and sacrifices or
obedience to his voice?It is better to obey than to sacrifice.It is better to listen to God than to offer the fat
of sheep.Disobedience is as bad as the
sin of sorcery.Pride is
as bad as the sin of worshiping idols.You have
rejected the Lord's command.Now he
rejects you as king."
