we read that the Lord was displeased with Eli. The Lord told Eli that He would raise up another prophet. Chapter 3 tells about Samuel’s calling to replace Eli as priest and also to be a prophet to Israel.As you read about what happened to Samuel, ask yourself the following questions: When and how might the Lord make His will known to me? How do I respond to the guidance and inspiration He gives?
