I recently had a 2 hour conversation with one of my sisters. We talked about everything. We moved from work to volunteering to marriage to dealing with people and much more. We eventually narrowed down to, the positive things we experienced over the last year…
My husband and I went shopping for a few things. We went to a particular store because they were running a campaign with 10% off everything. We got to there and the staff were really lovely. Every assistant that saw us standing idle asked us if we needed help — they get top marks for this.
In 1 Samuel 8, the people of Israel demanded a king to rule over them. By this, they rejected God’s sovereign rule and requested His creation rule them instead.
They failed to realise that it is better to have God as your king than men who are flawed.
