Samuel (CSSA Junior Stage 2 Lesson 17)
The life of Samuel acts as a perfect bridge between the time period of the Judges and the Kingdom of Israel. More then that though, we see an incredible example of a young boy dedicated from birth to the work of God and those who raised him up to lead Israel faithfully. No sin is recorded of Samuel in the whole record and what a wonderful example for us to aspire too as we raise up young minds to be devoted to our Heavenly Father for their whole lives.

My heart rejoiceth in the Lord, mine horn is exalted in the Lord: my mouth is enlarged over mine enemies; because I rejoice in thy salvation. There is none holy as the Lord: for there is none beside thee: neither is there any rock like our God.
