Who is Going to Rule Over You?
1 Samuel 8:1-22
“One of the first lessons we have to learn is a wholesome disregard for other people’s ways.” – Alexander Maclaren
What Does it Reveal?
- Our Passion for Substitutes
- Deuteronomy 17:14-20
- We have a tendency to access our problems mechanically and not spiritually
- Instead of looking to God for help, His way, we tend to prescribe what we want the Lord’s help to look like
- Sometimes God will grant our requests to our own peril
- Our Aversion to Holiness
- Deuteronomy 4:32-40
- Our Immunity to Wisdom
