Samuel was a "father figure" to Israel and many of the traits he exhibited here in chapter 12 give us examples of what good fathers do.
ILLUS: One father had a three-year-old daughter who was having trouble sleeping through the night. She’d often wake up several times in the night because she was afraid. Each time as he re-tucked her into bed, he would remind her that Jesus was with her and he would keep her safe.
