King Saul was a good king at first but soon began to disobey God. God decided to choose another king who would obey him. God sent Samuel to Bethlehem to find a man named Jesse who had eight sons. God told Samuel that He does not look at how tall or good looking a man is. Instead, God looks at how good and kind a man is. God choose David, a shepherd boy and the youngest of Jesse's sons to be the next king of Israel. David did not become king immediately but waited until God was ready for him. David played his harp to comfort King Saul. David was a good man and was pleasing to God.
"...for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart." 1 Samuel 16:7b (NKJV)
