On page 4 of Samuel Anoints Saul King , we see a big red flag in Saul's behavior. Samuel is announcing to the tribes of Israel that God has chosen their first king and...where is Saul? He didn't even make it to the stage to talk to the people. He is too afraid to face the crowd, so he hides with the luggage. His actions foreshadow the future when he will give into fear and not rely on God when faced with tough situations.
I have Saul crouched down, peering over a wall of barrels, obviously terrified of speaking in front of a crowd. He will need some major encouragement to take his place in the spotlight. Not a good start for a beginning of king's career.
