My kids are on break from school all this week. I’m not entirely sure why and I’m not complaining. However, it is an adjustment. I absolutely LOVE having them home with me, but it does make work an interesting challenge.
Such has been proven again and again this week. Today is no exception.
Our Bible study of 1 Samuel continues! I told everyone I would have our homework notes up this morning. It’s nearly 3pm and I just now got the .pdf posted. (You can find it on the Big Word page along with the notes and homework from previous weeks.) We’ve finished the first ten chapters and are moving on to the next two. The time of judges has come to an end and Israel has its first king. Saul.
The big question between last night’s discussion and our next is this: Was it God’s will that Israel have a king?
There are several verses in support of both assertions. You can consult the notes for specific references and arguments. I’m curious — what do YOU think? Why?
If you haven’t joined our study yet, I encourage you to do so. It’s not too late! All the notes are available for FREE download. Take a look and jump into the comments section here.
NOTE: Normally we hold our study every other week, on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays/Thursdays of each month. Next week, however, is Leap Day, so our next discussion will be in THREE weeks, not two. I hope you’ll join us!
