Obedience and Love Part 1

Let us fetch the ark.

1 Samuel 4: 3

The meditation within the “Word Among US” from January 11, 2024 is the essence in our relationship with God and each other. The reading comes from 1 Samuel 4:1-11 where the Philistines rallied and decisively defeated a beleaguered Hebrew nation. As a parent, you want to help your children grow in virtue, yet many times they rebel for their own way. You teach them to say “please” and to be polite, but they shout “please” like a magic word to get what they desire. They overlook the larger purpose-and the love that lies behind it. 

This relationship of parent and child illustrates God’s patient work with Israel. God chose a people, formed in his commands, and gave them a homeland, but he also had a larger aim. He wanted them to walk in his ways so that they could be a light to the surrounding nations. Often, however, the Israelites missed this bigger purpose. Stay tuned for part 2 of this devotion tomorrow! 

Draw near to God!
