1 Samuel 3:13
For I have told him that I will execute judgment against his family forever, because of his wickedness in not rebuking his sons, even though he knew that they had brought a curse on themselves.
The judgement that ADONAI pronounced on Eli and his family is two fold. First he condemns the higher authority of the family in this case Eli, as the head of the family he did nothing to try to correct these disobedient sons. Especially since they were commissioned to serve ADONAI in HIS temple. Then God holds the sons responsible for their actions. As a father and grandfather I must give correction when it is needed to fail to do so is to sin like Eli and get lost in my own selfishness. Yet no matter the amount of correction I give every child will be judged by their own actions so they too must come to terms with serving ADONAI. Lord let me be like Sh’mu’el and not let any of Your Word fall to the ground. Grant that I always see Your hand and direction in my life. I ask this in Yeshua’s name, amen.
