JB Shreve is joined by Terrell Spencer for this morning’s pandemic devotional. Terrell talks about the desire to take control of things and how Israel cried out for a king.
So all the elders of Israel gathered together and came to Samuel at Ramah. They said to him, “You are old, and your sons do not follow your ways; now appoint a king to lead us, such as all the other nations have.”But when they said, “Give us a king to lead us,” this displeased Samuel; so he prayed to the Lord. 1 Samuel 8:4-6
