Passage: 1 Kings 17:17-24
19 September 2021
The widow is beside herself with grief as she confronts Elijah with anger: “What have you against me, O man of God? You have come to me to bring my sin to remembrance and to cause the death of my son!” In her grief and anger, the only explanation she can think of for what has happened to her son is that having a prophet in the house has meant that God has been taking a closer look at her, has seen her prior life worshipping
Baal, and has now decided to punish her for that sin.
