March 7, 2021 – Running On Empty

March 7, 2021

2 Kings 4:1-7 Now the wife of one of the sons of the prophets cried to Elisha, “Your
servant my husband is dead, and you know that your servant feared the LORD, but
the creditor has come to take my two children to be his slaves.” (2) And Elisha said
to her, “What shall I do for you? Tell me; what have you in the house?” And she
said, “Your servant has nothing in the house except a jar of oil.” (3) Then he said,
“Go outside, borrow vessels from all your neighbors, empty vessels and not too
few. (4) Then go in and shut the door behind yourself and your sons and pour into
all these vessels. And when one is full, set it aside.” (5) So she went from him and
shut the door behind herself and her sons. And as she poured they brought the
vessels to her. (6) When the vessels were full, she said to her son, “Bring me
another vessel.” And he said to her, “There is not another.” Then the oil stopped
flowing. (7) She came and told the man of God, and he said, “Go, sell the oil and
pay your debts, and you and your sons can live on the rest.”
