Kicking Against the Goads

Dear all :)
Just wanna share with you what I have read in this book What the Bible is All About

In Acts 9. Lord Jesus appeared in Saul when he was on the way to Damascus to persecute the Christians.
Then, Lord Jesus told him, ‘Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me? It is hard for you to kick against the goads.’ (Acts 26:14)

What does it mean that it was hard for him to kick against the goads?

It turned out that Saul was struggling with his own conscience as he had consented/approved Stephen’s death (Acts 8:1).
Saul knew he was in the wrong, but he would not give up.
Hence, it was hard for him to convince himself that he was doing the right thing.

Hopefully this sharing above helps us understand the Bible a little bit more :D
