In desperation, we often make quick promises to God. Please God do “this” and I promise I’ll do “that”. Hannah of old vowed as well; “if you give me a child, I’ll give him back to you”. To her that meant, as soon as her child was weaned (I’m not sure what age that was – quite young for sure) she would bring him to the temple to serve God … and leave him there. She kept her promise, her vow to God. Can you imagine?
