Consistent Example

Today's reading: 1 Samuel 12:1-25

Now an old man, Samuel addresses the Israelites one more time, reminding them of Who God is and then calling the nation to respect, serve and obey Him.

As I took in Samuel's passionate address, once again, his absolute commitment to God was apparent. From his earliest years to his final days, Samuel wholly followed God--seeking His instruction, following His words and then faithfully leading and guiding God's people. As I finished chapter 12, I spent a few minutes thinking about Samuel's example. Here are some descriptive words that came to my mind: unwavering, steadfast, dependable, submitted, devoted, loyal, honest, firm.

What does Samuel's life show us about serving God in and through our circumstances? What about serving God as we get older? What was the most important lesson you learned from Samuel's example? Tami
