I Samuel 3:11-19
Rather than focus on the call of Samuel, we will focus on the immediate task, which was to
tell the truth to Eli. (vs. 11, 17-18)
1. An Element of Discernment (7)
Before you attempt to speak the truth, make certain that you know the truth.
2. An Element of Hesitation (15)
Your hesitation Is the indication of how important the truth is to you, and how well you acknowledge the impact the truth can have on others.
3. An Element of Participation (18)
Sometimes people don't want to hear the truth.
If it hurts them to hear it, it should hurt you to say it.
“The Lord was with Samuel as he grew up, and He let none of his words fall to the ground. (vs. 19)
