First, ask God to see something you can apply to your life.
Then, read 1 Samuel 8.
Then, write down something you can apply to your life.
Then, read what I wrote:
– Historical — Israel rejected Samuel’s immoral sons as their future leaders (judges) then rejected God as their king by asking for a human king like other nations.
- Doctrinal — When people reject the plan/people God has for them, they are rejecting God himself (verse 7).
- Inspirational — I need to equip people with options and consequences to people to help them make informed choices about following God (verse 9).
