Discussion for 1 Samuel 8

    There is a great lesson to learn in this passage. The people are not trust God. The Israelite rejected God they are bored of His stuffs they needed different stuffs. Hence, comes a great problem, they are been warned but so adamant to listen to the call. As the Word of God says "those who trust in God are like mountain Zion ..." We should learn to trust and believe in God alone.

    Israel was discontent with GOD, so they sought pleasure elsewhere, we are still doing that today we tend to lean more on our own will, instead of GOD 's DEVINE WILL.
