The Widow of Zeraphath


Years of drought and crop failure and God 'commands' a widow to feed Elijah. How do you think that command came to her?

When Elijah speaks to her, she doesn't seem to know anything about it. Yet she takes the makings of what she expects to be her and her sons last meal and shares it.

Why? How do God's commands come? What constitutes a tipping point between self-protection and generosity?

How does that work?
