Integrity is often seen as one of the key traits of a successful leader. When someone has it they are trusted and valued because what they say and do are always consistent with the values they claim to embrace.

Integrity has to be demonstrated just as trust has to be earned. Leaders in the public eye are also in the spotlight: they have the power and opportunity to affect the lives of others. All too often, though, those we expect to lead us have been proven to have only their own interests at heart.

Integrity can't be bought nor is it possible for it to handed down from Father to son. We might expect the sons of the Father to be competent and all caring but their real concern is to make their lives easier for themselves and enjoyable at others' expense.

How different it is when we encounter the real deal. Samuel's conception and birth was soaked in prayer: he learns by being in the place where God is worshipped. In time, he will become the power broker as a nation regains its strength and the worshipping community regains its connection to God.

God calls us through circumstances and our convictions to respond to him. Although, we may be in torrid and risky times, What he does when respond will change the world. This gives our lives profound purpose.

It’s often the most unlikely people who seemingly have the least claim to be anything, who end up having the greatest impact.

God’s purposes are worked out through those who He chooses (Acts 2:39). On the face of it, Hannah has little to commend her - a barren woman, accused of being the worse for wear for drink at the Ministry meeting.

God has other plans. At a time of national breakdown, Hannah's faith and faithfulness will be rewarded and her son will play a major part in the future of Israel
