Today's reading: 1 Samuel 3:1-21

Eli's indifferent attitude toward God left me with a heavy heart. Rather than humbling himself before God and asking for forgiveness upon hearing God's message of judgment through Samuel, Eli maintains his detached and distant stance. It's a sad picture that serves as a reminder that our hearts can grow spiritually cold when we're not nurturing our relationship with God and seeking to grow spiritually.

What are your habits when it comes to maintaining and nurturing your relationship with God? How often do you talk with God? How often do you read His Word? Why are both so important? Tami

Do not trust your day without prayer. It is so important in having a spiritually relationship with God when you want to stay near to Him.

Boy, this lesson got me in the heart!!
I am ashamed that I have to admit this:
But...I have an indifferent relationship in my
prayer life and in reading God's Word.

I pray and read my Bible. But I must confess and ask God to forgive me for not having a burden for lost souls,being thoughtful,gentle,kind long suffering, patience just to name a few of my limitations.
I need to have an intention habit of reading and praying!!
It is so important for my spiritual life.
I need a heart that is after God's own heart and to obey Him,just like Samuel!

vs.19 "And Samuel grew, and the Lord was with him."

Painful but a spot-on lesson, Tami!
Thanks and may God bless you!
