Deuteronomy 22:1-23:8; Joel 3:1-21; Luke 12:22-40

Therefore Eli said unto Samuel, Go, lie down: and it shall be, if he call thee, that thou shalt say, Speak, Lord; for thy servant heareth. So Samuel went and lay down in his place. 1 Samuel 3:9

Eli had many faults and failures, but we must commend his positive attitude towards Samuel when he realised this young boy was going to be God’s choice, not himself, in serving the coming generation. Rather than overlooking spiritual young people, let us encourage them not to despise their youth (1 Tim. 4:12). —Brian Russell

You are my strength when I am weak,
You are the treasure that I seek,
You are my all in all. —Dennis Jernigan
