1 Samuel 1:8 is in many ways the worst verse of the whole Bible.


But it does have something to teach us, if we will listen.


! Samuel 1:8: Her husband Elkanah would say to her, “Hannah, why are you weeping? Why don’t you eat? Why are you downhearted? Don’t I mean more to you than ten sons?” (NIV)


The mind boggles.


The short answer to that last question is NO


A longer answer might be If you don't see the answer to that, and you obviously don't, then you yourself don't deserve a wife or sons at all. What a shame your mind isn't as big as your ego. You'd be the world's biggest genius. Instead of the world's biggest dickhead.


Don't be an Elkanah.
