“Saul said to Samuel, ‘I have sinned, for I have transgressed the commandment of the LORD and your words, because I feared the people and obeyed their voice'” (1 Samuel 15:24 ESV)

Saul obeyed man instead of God. And the Lord rejected him as king. The desire to please people rather than God has led to the downfall of many. Even in Saul’s confession he begged Samuel to stay and “honor” him before the elders of Israel. He still worried about his image. But God is looking for a man who cares only what God thinks of him. God looks for one after His own heart.
