1 Samuel 3:1-21. In God's call of Samuel, we find a persistent, personal God in pursuit of His people. In doing so, He often afflicts the comfortable and comforts the afflicted--to bring about His purposes for His glory and for our good.

1 Samuel 2:27-36. When Eli was confronted by God's prophet in regards to his sons, he got a sense of where he went wrong as a father and as a priest. Eli suffered a loss of self-perception. His home lacked discipline. He was also short-sighted and in the end, he underestimated the grace of God.
