Didn’t See this One in Sunday School

Sometimes things aren’t what they seem

Hannah wanted a child. She was infertile. She went to a temple and prayed desperately for a child. A priest named Eli saw her praying and thought that she was drunk. I think this story is hillarious. Sometimes things really aren’t what they appear to be.

1 Samuel 1:12-15

12 And it came to pass, as she continued praying before the Lord, that Eli amarked her mouth.
13 Now Hannah, she spake in her heart; only her lips moved, but her voice was not heard: therefore Eli thought she had been drunken.
14 And Eli said unto her, How long wilt thou be drunken? put away thy wine from thee.
15 And Hannah answered and said, No, my lord, I am a woman of a sorrowful spirit: I have drunk neither wine nor strong drink, but have apoured out my soul before the Lord.
