1 Samuel 8:1-8. Trials can test our faith. But post-trial presents its own temptations. Instead of being thankful and contented in times of peace, we often look to secure our future ourselves hoping to avoid going backwards in life. This is not living by faith but by fear. Here, God speaks through Samuel to warn His people they must be careful what they wish for and why, because they may just get it.
