Have you ever dropped something on the ground? Of course we have and our reaction depended upon what we dropped. If you dropped a ball, a pencil or something that couldn’t really get damaged your reaction was probably, “Oh well, I’ll just dust it off.” If you dropped something that was very valuable or fragile your reaction would be very different. You would gasp and be upset over what you just allowed to fall to the ground and break into a million pieces!
I Samuel 3:19 – And Samuel grew, and the LORD was with him, and did let none of his words fall to the ground.
To Samuel the Word of God was extremely valuable and important in his life. So important that Samuel made sure that none of God’s word fell to the ground! This means that Samuel took God’s Word to heart and used God’s Word to guide his life. The Word of God didn’t just go in one ear and out the other it stayed in his heart. To Samuel God’s Word was precious and valuable.
How valuable and precious is God’s Word to you? How many times have we allowed God’s word to fall to the ground? Yeah, we read God’s Word but does it stick? We go to church but do we really listen? God’s Word is so precious that it can change lives for eternity! Let’s strive not to allow God’s Word to fall to the ground.
