A Filtered Life

Instagram (and many other apps) has a setting to add filters to pictures. Filters are used to make your pictures look better or to hide imperfections. Sometimes, we think of life like that. If we do enough “good” we can cover up our mistakes. Or, maybe we do our best to hide our imperfections with dishonesty and a lack of accountability. As we see in the life of Saul, however, what we really need is a radical transformation from God—not just “good deeds.”
