Keeping it clear

Caleb and William want to learn about David and Solomon, so last night we began 1 Samuel. In the first verse, Elkanah is described as the son of – among others – Zuph. Naturally, Caleb found this a splendidly comical name:

“Zuph!”

“Yes, Caleb; he was one of Elkanah’s forefathers.”

“Oh.”

“Right, let’s keep reading.”

“‘And he had two wives . . .'”

“Woah! Four fathers and two wives!”

It is a reminder that – whether in family worship or church services – it is worth our time to make our meaning very clear.
