The Daily Nosh – I Samuel 2:26, 30b
Meanwhile, the child Samuel kept growing and increasing in favor both with Adonai and also with men. But now declares Adonai (the Lord), far be it from Me! For I will honor those who honor Me, but those who despise Me will be disdained. (TLV) I Samuel 2:26, 30b
Nosh: Obedience to God produces a chain reaction of blessing. First, favor and honor from God, then God promotes favor and honor in our interactions with those around us. We lift him up and honor Him, and He does the same for us.
