He gives us a chance anyway. Saul looked like he could fit the role. But the important things Saul needed, he lacked. God knew Saul’s character flaws but gave him a chance anyway.
Saul ruled Israel for 40 years but never really understood the role.
He failed miserably. God knows when we are going to fail. He always gives us the opportunity to turn to Him. Those who do find redemption.
