The Boy Who Lived in God's House
I Samuel 1:28
Samuel was a small boy his mother, Hannah, brought him to the house of the
Lord, in Shiloh. The high priest, Eli, lived there. She told Eli that she
was bringing her little boy as a gift to the Lord. She wanted him to live
in the Lord's house. She wanted him to learn how to do the work that
the high priest, was kind to little Samuel. He taught him how to do many
useful things. He told him much about God. Samuel helped the minister keep
the Lord's house clean and beautiful. Every day there was something to do.
He carried the oil for the lamps. He kept the bowls and dishes clean.
night Samuel heard a voice calling his name. He thought it was Eli's
voice, and ran to him. But Eli had not called. When Samuel returned to his
bed, he heard the voice again. And again he thought Eli must have been
calling for him. By and by he found out that God was calling instead of
Eli. Then he lay still in his bed and listened while God talked to him.
