Week 2: Day 1

Read: 1 Samuel 2:11-26

Explore:

The passage goes into detail about the practices of Eli’s sons.  What do you think they did wrong? 

For some background reading: Leviticus 7: 22-36

Compare and contrast the way Eli’s and Elkanah’s family are described in the passage. How does God respond to Samuel’s family? 

Apply:

Samuel’s part in the passage is sandwiched between descriptions of Eli’s son’s failures.  Samuel, a small faithful boy, is an unlikely hero, a pin prick of light in the dark. 

Are there are opportunities in your life where God can shine through you? 

Read John 1:1-13

Jesus was God’s light to the world, helping believers navigate away from sin and death back to God. 

Pray:

·         Thank God for Jesus, whose light shines just as bright today as it did 2000 years ago

·         Pray that God would work through you so that others may see His light
