Bible Story:

1 Samuel 8

God had always taken care of His people. He had done so in mighty and powerful ways, yet they cried out for an earthly king. Samuel explains to them all that the earthly king will do to them, yet they still cry for the king, rejecting the one, true King of all.



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.
