Eli's silence in chaos moved a nation toward ruin. Much like the refusal of our country to respond to a virus that has claimed over 600,000 souls, Eli sat idly by the side of the road as 30,000 soldiers died in battle. Calamity and destruction surrounded Israel as this man was captured by an infectious spirit of entitlement. God is beckoning His people back to the altar, the place of repentance. We've moved too far from the sanctity of God's presence, forsaking His will for what we THINK we deserve, but revival is bringing God's people back to Him.
