David Anointed as King

Today’s First Reading is a well-known favorite Bible story! It’s the story of the prophet Samuel going to the home of Jesse to find a new king for Israel from among his many sons. The most popular part of the tale is the selection of the youngest (and most unlikely) son, David.
But the first four lines of the story are very powerful and yet maybe a little overlooked.
The LORD said to Samuel:
“How long will you grieve for Saul,
whom I have rejected as king of Israel?
Fill your horn with oil, and be on your way.

In today’s reading, God shows us how to get over the disappointment. He tells Samuel to “Fill your horn with oil and be on your way!” That’s the lesson for us too. Maybe we don’t have the best situation at home or at work. What can we do to “fill our horn” and get on the way?
