Scripture: 1 Samuel 2:22-25
We are told in 1 Samuel 2:22-25 that Eli’s sons were so bad in the operation of the Priesthood that God Himself wanted to kill them. This must have made a real impression on Samuel. The Lord even told Samuel that He was going to perform judgment on Eli and on his house and it was such a judgment that all the ears in Israel would tingle. Could this have been what formed the steel in Samuel’s backbone concerning integrity, and become the foundation of the power of his ministry? Samuel learned the fear of the Lord from what God did to Eli and his sons. How will we learn it?
