1 Samuel 8:1-3 (NKJV) Now it came to pass when Samuel was old that he made his sons judges over Israel.
The name of his firstborn was Joel, and the name of his second, Abijah; they were judges in Beersheba.
But his sons did not walk in his ways; they turned aside after dishonest gain, took bribes, and perverted justice.
Samuel begitu sibuk memimpin umat Israel, memuridkan umat Israel, hingga ia lupa memuridkan anaknya sendiri, dan anak-anak Samuel tumbuh sebagai anak durhaka.
Para pembaca terkasih, janganlah kita lupa pemuridan dimulai dirumah, jangan sampai kita terlalu sibuk dengan segala kesibukan diluar, dan lalai memuridkan, lalai mendidik anak- anak kita
Pemuridan dimulai dirumah terlebih dahulu.
