An Empty Exchange

1 Samuel 12 is all about an exchange. Israel had something but it didn’t perform the way they thought it should. It didn’t look just right compared to those around them. So they demanded something different. And they got it along with a stern warning from the grizzled old prophet Samuel. The only question was whether or not they would listen. So today we listen in on the speech of a man who had seen a lot and heard a lot and it gives us a chance to examine our own hopes. Will they satisfy? Will they do what we want? Or will we make an empty exchange?

The Beginning is Not the End

“Don’t count your chickens before they hatch” the old saying goes. It’s pretty good advice because a lot of things can change in a hurry. And a lot more things can change over time. That’s why the world is full of what have been called a “flash in the pan.” They are here for a second, but they don’t last. The bad new is that the beginning is not the end. Just because you are doing well now does not mean you will do well at the end. But the good news is the same: The beginning is not the end. Just because you are doing poorly now doesn't mean you will do poorly at the end. The grace of Christ in the gospel gives hope to all of us. Partake of it now while you have a chance.

Be Careful What You Pray For Because You Might Get It

Prayer is something that almost every one does. People who haven't been in church in years still find reasons to pray because they recognize there is something bigger than us out there who can do things and fix things. Yet as my mother used to tell me, Be careful what you pray for because you might get it. Today, we see how God answers the prayers of Israel and in so doing starts them down a road that is going to end very badly. And all this because they did not listen.

From Chaos to Blessing - Ruth

Life doesn't always work out the way we want it to. Often our dreams get dashed on the rocks of reality. It is easy for bitterness and anger to set in. But God is always at work in our lives to bring us to his purposes.

Listening Wisely

Seeing the future can be both good and bad. It can be good to know what is coming. It can be bad when you don't take what you know about the future into account. Today in the of Samuel, we see a strong warning about the future for Israel. Would they listen with wisdom?
