1 Samuel 8

We have just begun a new sermon series looking at the life of King David from the books of 1 & 2 Samuel. As we read the stories and meet the characters presented to us in these books we find, as pastor Eugene Peterson says "that we are not being led to see God in our stories but to see our stories in God's."  

In this week's passage, the Israelites demand a human king to rule over them, rejecting God's own rule and ignoring Samuel's warnings of how it will turn out for them. As people, we often choose what isn't best for us, thinking we know better than God. Thankfully, God's faithfulness remains sure, in spite of ourselves.
