Re:Verse reading–1 Samuel 1 (day four)
It’s called ‘setting the stage’ or ‘giving the backstory’ or ‘introducing the characters’. Knowing Samuel’s story helps us to understand who he is and why he acts the way he does. Samuel was not only given to the Lord’s service in the Temple, his parents supported and encouraged his commitment to the Lord all of their days. Samuel’s dedication to the Lord by his parents led to a life of faithful service all of his days.
We do the same…we have baby or home dedication where we bring our new child before the church to present him to the Lord and to pray for his faithfulness. It’s a commitment to raise him in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Are your children grown? It is never too late to pray Scripture for your children. Parents have a special place of prayer for their children. What a special privilege. Don’t miss the opportunity and blessing!
