Word Search for Samuel Followed God
In 1 Samuel 8:1-9; 10:1&9 we read the important story about how the elders in Israel complained to Samuel and asked that they be given a king. Neither God nor Samuel were happy that the people had asked Samuel to give them a king, but God told Samuel to do as they had requested. God then led Samuel to a man named Saul and instructed Samuel to anoint him as the new king. This began Israel’s long and often sinful monarchy. This free, printable Word Search for Samuel Followed God will help children understand that God often does things we don’t fully understand or even like, but we are to follow God’s direction, even when we don’t want to do so.
