“And when the time was that Elkanah offered, he gave to Peninnah his wife, and to all her sons and her daughters, portions: 5But unto Hannah he gave a worthy portion; for he loved Hannah: but the LORD had shut up her womb.” I Samuel 1:4-5
Several other versions use the words double portion instead of worthy portion. Elkanah tried to satisfy his wife Hannah by giving her a double portion. But that didn’t satisfy her. So often men try to satisfy the needs that some people have by giving them a double portion of this world’s goods. But it never satisfies them because what they really need and want, only the Lord can give. Let us be givers of the things of God.
