Compartmentalizing Our Lives

Jared Wilson at the Gospel Coalition writes that:

As humans when we leave God out of our lives, or ignore his express directives, we inevitably get it wrong. The Bible is full of stories that illustrate this point. For instance when Samuel informs Saul, “to obey is better than to sacrifice” (1 SAM 15:22 CSB).
