You can read this introduction before reading the chapter above.
Hannah's child has been permanently lent to the Lord. Chapter two opens with Hannah's prayer. Meanwhile Eli's sons were continuing unabated in their disregard for God's law. They were treating the sacrifices people were bringing to God's house with very little respect to put it mildly.
Samuel was learning fast. As a young boy he was ministering to the Lord. It's essential that we bring our children up to fear the Lord. Hannah received a blessing for bringing up her godly child while Eli received a curse for his ungodly ones.
Let's pray that God will grant us the wisdom to handle the responsibility He has given us in all areas of our life.
