1Sam 15:9 But Saul and the people spared Agag and the best of the sheep, the oxen, the fatlings, the lambs, and all that was good, and were unwilling to utterly destroy them. But everything despised and worthless, that they utterly destroyed.
Saul missed the target when he failed to destroy everything as instructed. You’ve heard the phrase “he hit the bullseye,” meaning hitting the center of a target. In Saul’s case, he missed the bullseye, because he only destroyed the things he rendered worthless.
We are often guilty of disobedience when the Lord asks that we rid our lives of junk, and we only eliminate the things that are worthless in our sight, and keep those we still consider dear to our hearts. Missing the target is contrary to God’s will. You can even be in ministry but be outside God’s will (target), living in disobedience. We must continue to abide in Him as we die to ourselves, that is our only hope.
