I was reading 1 Samuel 1:20-28. It was one of the readings for Mother’s Day last Sunday. Everyone always talks about Hannah’s sacrifice because it was huge! I can’t imagine having to do that. It was her husband Elkanah who not only agreed, but set the boundaries in place. It was his statement at the end that struck me. “May The Lord establish His WORD.”
This is God’s job, to establish His Word. Is our job to sacrifice? What in our lives are we sacrificing, should it be more, less? What are our boundaries?
How wonderful and what a privilege to be involved in this process. We will never regret anything we have given up in order to make ourselves available to Him for this purpose.
