Hannah and Samuel 2

中文: Chinese Version

Hearing the Bible account of the early years of the boy Samuel, I was touched when his mother Hannah dedicated him to the Lord. I remembered my own mother telling me how, when she held me in her arms at my birth, she thanked God and dedicated me to Him.

Listening further, I could imagine the boy Samuel going to the old prophet Eli’s bedside at night, thinking he had heard Eli calling for assistance. After three times, Eli realized it might be the Lord calling, and told Samuel what to say if the voice called again.

When he heard the voice again calling “Samuel, Samuel!”, the boy answered as instructed: “Speak, Lord, for your servant is listening.”
