Week 2: Day 4

Read: 1 Samuel 3:11-21

Explore:

How do you think Samuel felt about God’s judgment of Eli?   

Describe Eli’s reaction to Samuel’s news?   

Apply:

Our society finds the picture of God as merciful father much easier to comprehend than that of God as holy judge. 

Why is it important that God is both?  What are the consequences if God is seen as only merciful? 

God’s word contains many stories, descriptions and commands that we find hard to understand.  How do you react?  How are we supposed to view God, even when we don’t fully understand his ways?   

Pray:

·         Ask for God’s help in seeing Him for what he is: gracious and just

·         Pray that our world and your friends and family will see and accept God for who He is: gracious and just
