1 Samuel 2 - Day 336 (link to today's reading)
Scripture: 1 Samuel 2:12-17
Observation: Eli, the priest, had two sons who abused their power for their own gain.
Application: Sin separates us from God. As we learned in the book of Judges, the Israelites did what was right in their own sight because they did not have a king. Ironically, God was their King. This chapter reveals that like a contagious virus, the sins of Israel had spread to the royal priesthood. Take heed and examine yourself - repent and seek God's forgiveness.
Prayer: Lord, have mercy on me a sinner....
