Do You Know Satisfaction in a World of Discontent?

    Have you noticed that the most innocuous habits, when allowed to go unchecked, always seem to wreak the most havoc? Consider behaviors such as comparing, complaining, criticizing, and coveting; these habits of a discontented heart can spread like weeds, marring our witness and choking our worship. Eradicating them requires more than just how-to advice.

    Video: "A Monumental Collapse, Part One" by Alistair Begg

    Partial obedience is still disobedience. Saul learned this lesson the hard way when he failed to execute God’s judgment against the Amalekites, sparing the king and the best of the sheep and cattle. Instead of a victorious celebration, he met with Samuel’s anger and the Lord’s regret. Our responses matter to God, teaches Alistair Begg. While we can be honest with Him about our frustrations, we are not free to change His word to fit our needs or justify our actions.

    Video: "A Monumental Collapse, Part Two" by Alistair Begg

    God’s command was clear: Israel was supposed to destroy the Amalekites. King Saul, blinded by his own sin, failed to complete this task; seeking to justify his actions, he replaced true obedience with religious formalism. This passage stands as a warning of sin’s deceitfulness—and also the steadfastness of God and His purposes. As Alistair Begg points out, while God felt sorrow over Saul’s sin, the Lord is always true to His word and consistent in dealing with disobedience.

    Hymn: "I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say" by Horatius Bonar

    I heard the voice of Jesus say,
    “Come unto Me and rest;
    Lay down, thou weary one, lay down
    Thy head upon My breast.”
    I came to Jesus as I was,
    Weary, and worn, and sad;
    I found in Him a resting-place,
    And He has made me glad.
