Sermon May 5, 2013: From a Mess to a Miracle

130505 Dan Keeton crop scaledLife is an adventure. We get into various situations and circumstances, and life can get messy fast. The Bible has spiritual giants who seem immune from the messes we experience. Consider the prophet Samuel, a spiritual giant who anointed Saul and David, the first kings of Israel. Some scholars held him up as equal to Moses. But his life began in a really messy way. His dad, Elkanah, had two wives: Peninnah and Hannah, who did not get along. Peninnah had many children, but Hannah couldn’t have any. Peninnah provoked Hannah to irritate her. Elkanah loved Hannah, but Hannah felt the inadequacy and incompleteness of not giving Elkanah children. She felt even worse at the temple. In spite of her feelings, Hannah made an extreme vow to God. Follow along in 1 Samuel as we see how God moves from a mess to a miracle.
