Samuel said, "What is this you have done?" Saul replied, "I saw my men scattering. So I felt compelled to offer the burnt offering myself before you came." "How foolish!" Samuel exclaimed.
See 1 Samuel 13:11-13
Sometimes our mistakes are created by the selfish pursuit of our own agenda. When our choices are guided primarily by selfish ambition or a desire for physical fulfillment, we are more likely to make a mistake. BE BLESSED!
