It's week 3 of The Game of LIFE! This week we're talking about Rebellion and will look at I Samuel 12:14-15. If you land on a “You’re Fired” or “Mid-Life Crisis” space you must trade your career card and salary card for new ones. Sometimes life brings us changes, sometimes those changes are not for the best. Our teenage years bring an onslaught of new emotions as our brains and bodies go through several developmental changes. We also begin to test the limits of our own autonomy and some teenagers become quite rebellious. We push the boundaries just to see how far we can push before being brought back into line. The Israelites, jealous of other nations, sought a king, and despite being told repeatedly that God was their king, chose to demand God install a ruler over them. In Samuel’s farewell speech, he reminds the Israelites that their demand for a king was in itself a rebellious act, and he encourages them not to continue rebelling against God. Just like we might rebel against our parents or guardians, Christians can and do rebel against God and test the limits of God’s forgiveness. It is important for us to remember that our decision to rebel can often lead to a poor set of circumstances. When the world falls apart as a result of our actions, God is still with us, and still offers us forgiveness. He is with us in the midst of the storms LIFE throws at us, and in the midst of the storms we create through our own decisions. No matter how hard LIFE gets, God is worthy of our praise! See you at 8:30AM or 11:00AM! - Chris
