On this page, God is showing Samuel what would happen if Israel had a king. He's giving a stern warning that the people would have to give up their children to work hard labor all their lives. It's a rough reality to face since the Israelites had so much freedom when they were being ruled by judges.
Here, you see a man laboring in a field, struggling with his horse and plow. A young woman is baking bread inside a hot stove in the heat of the day. Billows of smoke blow out the top while the sun beats down on the people. They will not personally benefit from any of the work they are doing, it's all for the king.
