I Samuel Pt 12

 Taking care of what belongs to God
1 Sam 1:21-23
This man Elkanah went up with all his family to make the yearly sacrifice to the LORD and to keep his vow 

(I wonder what his vow was? Did he pray that his wife would conceive?) but Hannah did not go up with them. Instead she told her husband, "Once    
the boy is weaned (some sources say that this could have taken up to 3 years), I will bring him and appear before the LORD, and he will remain there from then on." -
So her husband Elkanah said to her, "Do what you think best. Stay until you have weaned him. May the LORD make good your promise." So the woman stayed and nursed her son until she had weaned him.

In a similar fashion to Moses' mother (Jochebed) who nursed and cared for him in preparation for Pharaoh's house and God's will; So Hannah would nurse and ready her son Samuel for the House and Calling of God.

May we be like These women and prepare and encourage the 'young treasures' around us for His purpose as well.

Grace and peace
