Discussion for 1 Samuel 1

    I think what stood out to me was that Hannah was so focused on what she didn't have, that she couldn't see what she did have. Be grateful for what you have and trust that God will reward you with the desires of your heart.

    In verse 7 Hannah was taunted so bad that she would weep and not eat. This shows how negatively our words may affect other people if we don't use them in an encouraging way.

    Another significant part about Hannah was that she kept to her vow.We should learn from this.God keeps vow and always honours it.It has always been men who do not keep their own side of the vows.I want you to know that you can turn around your situations by engaging God in a vow.May God help us and give us grace to overcome all our challenges in life,amen

    High Priest Eli mistakenly thought that Hannah was drunk. He did not have all the facts and he made a wrong assumption. We can learn a lesson from this and refrain from making assumptions too fast.

    The Lord hears the cries of his children. What Hannah had to go through was hard but she kept the faith and trusted God and her reward was great.
