Sunday's Child: Don’t Gloat Too Soon, a Reflection on 1 Samuel 2:1-10

Original post at http://suewhitt.blogspot.com/2012/11/dont-gloat-too-soon-reflection-on-1.html

What people today can sing Hannah's song with gratitude and sincerity? Who hopes to see God act in the way that Hannah describes? 

How could the powerful be happy about the promise that their weapons will be destroyed? Or, how could people who now have full stomachs look forward to having to accept jobs that pay barely enough for food?

Do those rich, powerful, well-fed folks somehow think they deserve what they already have?

Hannah thought differently. "Get over yourself," she said.

God cares about the poor, Hannah promises.
