Discussion for 1 Samuel 12

  • Peter A. Okebukola
    The key message from Samuel to the Israelites in this chapter is "Only fear the LORD, and serve him in truth with all your heart: for consider how great things he hath done for you." This message is true for us today and for all times. We must fear the Lord and serve Him in truth.

    12:15 BUT IF YOU WILL NOT OBEY THE VOICE OF THE LORD BUT REBEL AGAINST THE COMMANDMENT OF THE LORD THEN SHALL THE HAND OF THE LORD BE AGAINST YOU AS IT WAS AGAINST YOUR FATHERS
  • Brianna for verses 20-21
    These verses highlight how much we should be giving Jehovah. We have to serve him with all of our heart. If we do so, then we won;t get distracted by empty things that can cause us to be separated from God's love. To nurture our love for God we need to study his word the Bible, and then apply what we learn in everyday life. Associating with those who share our same values can help.
  • RONALD
    What stood out to me was, Israel demand for a king was a sin, in that request they were replacing God who had been their TRUE KING. They were being reminded of Gods faithfulness to them and their forefathers and even though they got the king they asked for.. the king was not to take the place of God and they were being reminded to obey Gods voice and if they failed to do that the same things that happened to their forefathers would also happen to them and their new king if they turned away from God. The point of the message was to stay obedient and faithful to God.

    Be truthful. faithful to all around you! If you decide to be a mean machine then time catches up with you and things sometimes happen to help you get back on the right track. You need to be a good person in order to really get help with water, lights, gas and more!
  • Rev. Tim George for verse 5
    The Lord wants us to be men and women of integrity. We must speak the truth in Love, and make restitution to anyone we may have harmed. Our yay must be yay and our nay must be nay. Then we will hear well done good and faithful servant enter thou into the joy of the Lord.
