How does connecting different parts of the story in the same or other chapters help make one scene more powerful and meaningful.

Look For: Put parts of a story or teaching together (don't forget previous and future chapters!) and "look for" connections.

Examples >1 Samuel 1 --2 Hannah's sacrifice of giving up her firstborn Samuel when you connect it with the suffering she went through (v. 6-7). It also makes her song (ch. 2) much more meaningful. How often do we get blessings from the Lord after much suffering and then forget to thank him? Are our thanks a simple one or worthy of being its own song like Hannah's?
