Woodlawn Family Bible Study
BIBLE READING: 1 Samuel 15:10-35
The Bible talks about God hardening the hearts of people. We see Judas’ heart hardened during the arrest of Jesus. We see Pharaoh’s heart hardened when the Israelites were taken out of captivity. Why would God harden their hearts? The answer is in the story of King Saul. He started out as a selection of God, but he strayed away as the years went on. When he was faced with a battle against David, he prayed to God. There was only silence. There was no response. At some point when we stray from God, our hearts become hardened. We become stubborn and the Lord does not hear us anymore.
Application: Do not let your heart become hardened.
