Mothers Devotionals Day 9 - A Mother who Shares!
1 Kings 17:15 So she proceeded to do according to the word of Elijah. Then the woman, Elijah, and her household ate for many days.
In this passage, when Elijah encounters the widow, he discovers that the drought has reduced her resources to a bit of flour, a dab of oil, and a few sticks of wood. She expects to starve to death along with her son. Elijah promises that her flour and oil will not run out until the drought ends. This promise comes true, so the widow and her son are saved by this miraculous provision. This passage shows that God’s people will always have what they need.
This mother was down to her very last. In 1 Kings 17:12, she told Elijah that she and her son would eat what was left and die thereafter. Despite that, she was obedient to the prophet and shared her last with him. Because of her faith and obedience God made sure that she and her household was taken care of. There are mothers today who may not have a lot. Nevertheless, they see others in need and they sacrifice and share what they have. Your mother or grandmother may have been that kind of woman. Mothers who share will always be taken care of by God. He sees you and He will always supply your needs according to His riches in glory!
Are you a mother who shares what you have?
Are you concerned about the well being of others before your own well being?
