The Old Testament tells us the story of first King of Israel: Saul. Who, from the moment Samuel the Prophet saw him, appeared head and shoulders above his contemporaries. Not just physically but spiritually too. Saul spoke prophetically and people wondered at their amazing king who they described as being among the Prophets.
What became clear, over time, was that the one who had appeared unshakable began to rock from side to side when the inevitable storms of leadership hit. Saul was all too easily seduced by the need to remain popular with the people and, eventually, he became paranoid and unstable.
How the mighty have fallen, in the midst of battle.
When the storms come, even the mighty fall if their roots are not deep enough.
If our roots are not set deep in the love of Jesus and love for one another, then we too might well join the long list of those who have fallen and have needed to be re-established.
