Give to Get

1 Samuel 2:19-20 – 20 And Eli would bless Elkanah and his wife, and say, “The Lord give you descendants from this woman for the loan that was given to the Lord.” Then they would go to their own home. 21 And the Lord visited Hannah, so that she conceived and bore three sons and two daughters. Meanwhile the child Samuel grew before the Lord.

God has blessed us with many things. Because His blessings are so great, we at times are not willing to share those blessings with anyone, including the Lord. Hannah prayed for a child and the Lord answered that prayer. Instead of hoarding that blessing, Hannah gave her son back to the Lord. She had waited so long for a child and she gave him back to the Lord. For her faithfulness, “the Lord visited Hannah, so that she conceived and bore three sons and two daughters.” Recognize that all blessings come from the Lord and some of our blessings must flow back to the Lord. When we give blessings back to God, God gives us more blessings in our lives to enjoy.

I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
