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.”
