Tales of Elijah

The Reading for Today: 1 Kings 17—18

As a ride on a roller coaster, 1 Kings shifts from heights of glory to depths of depravity. The splendor of Solomon tarnishes. No sooner is the Temple completed than it is abandoned for pagan shrines. The Kingdom splits into two.

Enter Elijah. The energy shifts as we feel the presence of God in this wondrous prophet. You will read a Bible story favorite of many—Elijah and the Widow of Zarephath. When you give your all to the Lord, each day will dawn with all you need. As the woman touching Jesus’ tassel, as the widow giving her last coin, give your “last meal” to the Lord and Jesus will give you the Bread of Life.
