Covenant renewal ceremony – – Which king were the Israelites reaffirming – Saul or God – or both? What difference does it make? What happens when we forget or lose the focus on Who is really ruling? How did Samuel remind Israel of this need to remember the God is their true King? Why the thunder and rain on their wheat harvest? See 12:22 – why will the LORD not reject His people? How is this also true in our lives today?
