That's Not Normal!

1 Samuel 4:12-22  (ID: 3356)

When news of Israel’s defeat reached Eli and his pregnant daughter-in-law, their responses were peculiar. Their deepest concern was not their loved ones’ deaths, the child’s unexpected birth, or even their own demises, but that the ark had been captured and God’s glory had departed from Israel. For the church to remain effective, Alistair Begg warns, we must also turn our attention from “me” and “now” to God’s glory as we nurture the next generation in the things of Christ.


The Death of Eli

12A man of Benjamin ran from the battle line and came to Shiloh the same day, with his clothes torn and with dirt on his head.
