1 Samuel 1 – 3
Why did Boaz redeem Ruth?
What did Hannah Gain:
The thing she prayed for, a son.
We do not fully possess the things we grasp until we let them go. 1:28
Consider Jesus, Philippians 2:6-7
A joyful heart.
The God of her ancestors became her Savior.
Giving Samuel away completed her delight in God.
A greater blessing than she could have imagined.
Samuel was the Billy Graham of the OT.
Samuel had authority because he spoke in God’s name.
What can I give to God that will increase in value?
