DAILY READINGS: Numbers 33; Proverbs 29; Luke:4:16-44
The child Samuel ministered unto the Lord before Eli…the Lord called Samuel: and he answered, Here am I. And he ran unto Eli, and said, Here am I; for thou calledst me. And he said, I called not; lie down again. And he went and lay down. 1 Samuel:3:1, 4-5
God was calling young Samuel to serve Him but sadly Eli had little ability to help him. Work among young people and children is very precious! It needs Spirit filled teachers who are well prepared and who know how to lead a young one to Christ. If I get involved in such work I will need to spend hours on my knees before an open Bible, seeking God’s face and His message, before I spend one hour in front of my Sunday School or young people’s class. —David Croudace
Teach me O Lord that I may teach, the precious things Thou dost impart;
Wing my words, that they may reach, the hidden depths of many a heart.
