1 Samuel Chapter 8

Samuel and Saul (8:1—15:35) Samuel judges Israel well, saves them from the Philistines, and leads them back to God. But when he retires, the nation does not want another judge. Instead, they demand to be given a king in order to be like the nations around them. Although God is unhappy with their request, he tells Samuel to anoint Saul as Israel’s first king. Saul is a skillful soldier who successfully leads the nation into many battles against their enemies. But in God’s eyes Saul is a failure because he constantly disobeys and does things his own way. God eventually rejects Saul as king.

Lets Bring it Home: Sometimes we want to go our own way rather than follow the ways of God. This will always end in ruin as it did for Saul.
