Scripture: 1 Samuel 1; 2:18-21
It is not an uncommon thing for people to be grieved at the high water points in the life of the church.
Mothering is a spiritual assignment
More than those for whom conception had come easy, Hannah realized that children are a gift from God.
Giving back to God is the best thing you can do when it comes to parenting.
q God loves our children more than we ever can.
q He knows our children better than we do
q He sees their uniqueness more than we are able.
Samuel was raised in the presence of the Lord.
q We make it a spiritual priority to visually demonstrate our faith before them.
q We make it a financial priority to provide for their involvement in spiritual activity.
q We make the time investment required to facilitate their involvement.
Not until I became a mother did I understand how much my mother had sacrificed for me. Not until I became a mother did I feel how hurt my mother was when I disobeyed. Not until I became a mother did I know how proud my mother was when I achieved. Not until I became a mother did I realize how much my mother loves me.
