The Story

Samuel had led Israel according to God’s instructions. He did a good job. So naturally you would expect Samuel’s sons to take on the family job, but they were wicked and evil. The elders of Israel did not want Samuel’s boys to lead Israel. So they asked for a king instead.

While this might sound okay to do, it actually wasn’t. In essence, the people of Israel rejected God as their king in an effort to be like all the other nations around them. They ended up getting a king that stood head and shoulders above everyone else. He looked kingly.
