1 Samuel 2:8 (b) This unfortunate person warming himself on the dung heap in the backyard is a type of the sinner who seeks to find comfort from the wretched and miserable things offered by this world. He begs the dunghill for warmth and comfort, and obtains some. He is willing to endure the offensive surroundings to obtain some temporary help. When GOD comes into a man's life, He changes him by means of the new birth, so that he no longer wants the dung heap of this world, but sits in the presence of GOD in a glorious atmosphere of heavenly association.
