Sermon Notes: Powerful Lessons from Hannah on Mother’s Day

A heartwarming image capturing a tender moment between a young mother and her precious baby.


In the vast tapestry of the Bible, we encounter a number of remarkable mothers. From Eve, the mother of all living things, to Sarah, the promised mother, to Jochabed, the sacrificial mother, to Naomi, the spiritual mother, and finally to Mary, the blessed mother of our Savior. On this joyous occasion of Mother’s Day, however, I want to draw your attention to the inspiring story of Hannah. Now, we all know the words in the Gospel of St. John chapter 3 verse 16 by heart, which tells us that God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, His firstborn. But did you know that Hannah, too, gave her firstborn son to God? It’s a tale of unwavering faith and surrender.

It’s Father’s Day once again and I want to consider the life of Eli for my sermon. Here’s why?

As tragic as it is, the word of God shows this was a disaster that could have been prevented if not for a man who failed as a father. Eli was the name of that man.
