"TRUE TO HER WORD"
Rev. Lon Lorton

1 Samuel 1:1-28
This is the story of the importance of a mother’s word.
It was thought that a mother’s legacy needed a next generation.
Hannah was willing to give her child to the Lord – without question.
Her hesitancy revealed a reality in us all.
This mother’s commitments revealed commitments that we, too, owe:
- To a child
- To a parent
- To a spouse
- To a church
- To God
There will be the pull to not follow through, but…
Hannah’s good example (her actions behind her words) is a challenge and a legacy: “Do the right thing.”
