October 4-Falling Short

Scripture Lesson: 2 Samuel 1:19-27

On this date in 1987, The Toronto Blue Jays complete one of the greatest collapses in Major League history by losing 1-0 to the Detroit Tigers. The Tigers win the American League East title. Toronto loses their last seven games of the season including the last three games at Tiger Stadium. This team had a great deal of potential but just fell short!

In our Scripture lesson today, King David is lamenting the death of King Saul and his sons in a battle against the Philistines. Saul’s son Jonathan was David’s best friend and had always been there for him even when Saul was out to kill David. He grieves over losing his very best friend. In verse 27 David writes, “How the mighty have fallen.” Saul was Israel’s first king and had such great potential. Saul began to neglect his relationship with God and the later years of his life were not happy. Saul fell short of the nation’s expectations and more importantly he fell short of what God had expected from him. God has great plans for each of us. As we walk with Him, may we live our lives not falling short of what God expects from us!

1. What does God expect from us?

2. Are we living up to His expectations? Why or why not?

3. How can we guard against falling short with God and not reaching our potential for Him?

It is very difficult for a team to just fall short of a championship. If we work on our relationship with God daily by being in His Word and praying, chances are we will not fall short with God! It should be most difficult for a believer to fall short with God!
