Sermon Title: The King We Need
Speaker: Pastor Chris Pollock
Sermon Series: Tales for Jewish Children (And the Rest of Us)
When the Israelite people ask their aging leader to give them a king, they are really saying that they need someone other than God to lead them to the next level. We may shake our heads, but this story reveals the truth about all humanity. If we ever find ourselves trying to control what we don't actually have control over -- we are in this story too.
Scripture references: 1 Samuel 8.4-11,16-20; 11.14-15
