Discussion for 1 Samuel 12

  • Irene Taylor
    The Lord our God is the Lord and Shepherd of His flock. He that has lost his life for the Lord shall reap everlasting life. The sacrifice in this time is a broken heart and contrite spirit that the Lord so desires. A meek and quiet spirit are given to His people. The Lord knows those who are His. We must stay faithful, continue in the first works, and endure unto the end in all obedience.
    Amen

    You know its so easy to read these scriptures and say what THEY did wrong or should do and what WE should do,but do we remeber these things when we ourselves have went back and forth back and forth,do WE always stay on point and NEVER fall?,so who are we to judge,we are NOONE,we ALL have done what these people did on some level,question is how long will it take us to STAY w/ father I pray 4u n me.
  • 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.

    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.
