    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.

    Verse 3: Even though Samuel set a good example as a parent, his sons did not follow his example. Each individual has the free will to decide which course he or she will take.

    Not allowing God to be their king is the beginning of trouble for the Israelites.

    The most important thing for me is to always acknowledge the presence of God, and what Jesus Christ has done for eternal life.

    The bible say warning comes before destruction and they was warned trying to be like other nations going against what God has already established u pay a price

    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.

    When israilites ask of king from God,they were simple saying to God we r tired of ur ways,we r tired to not resemble de world which we live in.they saw God instructions not gud for them Anymore,the God who took them out of egypt .2ven todae we want to resemble ths world,our characters r of ths world not of our serviour, The church hs became a place whr we meet n tok about pple ,about hw our week was wen this n that happened rather than seeking de one who continueously show us his love each n everydae.God says those who seek me wth poor heart they will find me,let us seek Him while we are able not till is tooo late.amen

    I read the comments above and the words of Samuel
    History keeps repeating itself
    Like a play and we the actors that read the lines were told
    To continue down this path of misery and at a older age recognize all your efforts were fruitless
    Yes as God spoke thru the prophet Samuel is teaching us again and again I see this time now as a selfish greedy lying thieving government as back then taking not one tenth of everything but half of everything
    But worse then that is the. Crimson tide the abortion holocaust
    How much longer can God allow this murderous atrocity to continue!!!
    There is so much hate and. Death in this world right now
    And so much lying and cover ups I think those times were better than now even with all this technology we have definitely lost our way!

    This is also relevant in many choices we make today (relationships, endeavors, etc.). Our lack of patience, obedience, and/or humility tends to steer us in the direction of our own will and not the Will of GOD. We tend to place our faith in ourselves/man, whe GOD is telling us all the while, to place it in HIM. All things are provided to us in GODS time!

    This shows us how stuborn we are as people, wanting things our way and not GOD way, I believe that GOD will say ok do it your way, but when your train wreck, do not call on ME call on the gods that you have chosen,GOD told Samuel to still be nice to the people, that is the kind of GOD that we serve, He ask so little of us and yet we ask for so much from HIM, we are living in a time that we really need to fast and pray,2 chron, If my people which are called by MY name will humble them selfs and pray seek MY FACE and turn from their evil ways then will I hear from heaven for give their sins and will heal their land, this is what HE ask of us and we still want thing our way and not HIS. LORD we need help .our hearts need to be circumcised and be willing to do just what GOD want us to do.

    Our God is so good!!!

    Our father jehova is not a forcefull God he will show himself in that thing u badly want and reaveal unto u that its not good for u so u would then chose which voice to hear the voice of the lord or the voice of the flesh right so he will leave it becouse to evirythin has its reward and consequences.

    When people keep doing opposite of what God wants, they will be punished. Somewhere. Somehow. Instead of praying and waiting for a king that God appoints/provides, people stupidly put the person of their choosing in control. This is another example of history repeating itself, in a bad way. The world is how it is because people don't pray, repent to God. Instead of asking and witing for God to take control of a situation, man does instead. Most men think they know better than God. Some don't even beleive in God. An example of God letting the people "get" what they want. An example of be careful what you want. God may just give it to you.
