Restoring Hope

“As surely as the Lord your God lives,” she replied, “I don’t have any bread—only a handful of flour in a jar and a little olive oil in a jug. I am gathering a few sticks to take home and make a meal for myself and my son, that we may eat it—and die.”—1 Kings 17:12 (NIV)
The unnamed widow who Elijah asked for food had given up hope. She had nothing left, and yet she shared what little she had with him. Her act of obedience and generosity is an example of how we should serve others. God rewards those who respond to His calls courageously and unselfishly. Often, helping others is the key to restoring our own hope.
Heavenly Father, help me to give as freely as You give.
