It has been said, that sorry is the hardest word to say. Actually, saying sorry is not that difficult to say. We say it all the time, but saying you’re sorry is not the same as being sorry, and being sorry is not the same thing as being broken.
In 1 Samuel 15, we read the tragic story of Saul, a man hand-picked by God and full of promise, but whose life ended tragically because of a lack of brokenness. His life and downfall serve as a reminder, that partial obedience, is no obedience at all. If we want the blessings of God on our lives and on our church, we must be a broken people.
