Do worry and uncertainty affect your giving? Elijah's words to a widow who was asked to give in 1 Kings 17:7-16 remind us that we always are able to give, if we can put fear and worry behind. The promises of God allow us to do that.
Through Isaiah, God promised woe, exile and death for the overindulgent children of Israel for whom he had done so much. Isaiah points us who indulge in excess to our Savior who fills our lives with something much better.
