1 Samuel 10:17-27 - Be Careful What You Ask For
Topic: Sunday Morning Teaching Passage: 1 Samuel 10:17–10:27
Porch pirating is a popular business. In New York City alone 90,000 packages go missing daily. What can people do to fight back against the thieves? Homeowners have come up with creative ways of payback. One inventor created a package called “the blank box”. It sets off a blank shotgun shell when the package is taken from a porch. Another created a package filled with manure that explodes when opened after being stolen by a thief. In those neighborhoods, porch pirates are thinking twice before they steal a package since they are turning out to be not what people expect. This week, as we continue our series of 1 Samuel, the people of God get the king they asked for, but like a porch pirate opening a bait package, the king didn’t turn out to be what they expected.
