Scripture: 1 Samuel 2:12-17
The distinction that is drawn between Samuel and the sons of Eli is that the sons of Eli did not know the Lord. That fact is reflected by their choices and their behaviors, which opened their lives to evil and corruption. Verse 12 states, “Now the sons of Eli were corrupt; they did not know the Lord.” This passage indicates that our life choices and the way we conduct ourselves indicates the level to which we know the Lord. If we know the Lord, then we specifically screen and reject layers of sin and corruption that make it impossible for God’s Word to function and operate in our lives.
