Samuel anoints Saul to be the first King of Israel.
- Heart for God – Again this theme comes up. God gives Saul a new heart (10:9). Samuel instructs the people to serve God with all their hearts (12:20, 24). Are you serving God with all your heart? Or is your heart divided?
- Empty things – Samuel warned the people not to “turn aside after empty things that cannot profit or deliver” (12:21). What are some empty things that our world chases after? What empty things do you chase after?
- Prayer – Samuel pledges to continue praying for people (12:23). How is your prayer life? Who have you pledged to pray for? Who do you need to pray for today?
