Bible Story:

1 Samuel 8

God’s people, called Israel, were not satisfied with God being their King. They wanted an earthly king and even though they were warned that the king would not be their savior, they still wanted a king.



Everything was perfect in the world until we broke it. When humanity chose to sin, the world that was once perfect became messed up and broken. Sin is ultimately a rejection of God Himself. Because of sin bad things happen, we experience all types of pain, and death has come into the world. All of creation groans and wishes that the world be perfect and good like it was before.
