A Snapchat of a Good King

Whether you use Snapchat or not, you may be familiar with the fleeting nature of the pictures people send using the app.  The images are only visible for a brief period of time and then  they are gone.  As we open 1 Samuel 11 today, we find a biblical sort of Snapchat.  As Saul steps into his role as king, we see a brief image of a good king.  Yet it doesn’t last long.  But even in this brief moment, this short glance, we can learn something about being a good king and something about our Good King.
