We are going to tackle quite a lot of text from 1 Samuel this Sunday.
Having an idea of the story from 1 Samuel chapters 8-15 will help you grasp the teaching more easily, and will help me not have to cram everything in.
As you read ahead in preparation for Sunday, here are a few questions to consider...
Where do you see someone trying to follow a "formula" rather than God?
What does God really want from people who follow him?
What are some differences between Saul, the King, and his son, Jonathan?
