Reflections on I Samuel 10-12

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?
