The Story: Two Nameless Widows (Luke 4:26; Mark 12:42-44)

Action (1): Bless, Be Blessed

Action (2): Why Me? What about Me? How about Me?

Questions

1. In what ways might we have in common with the circumstance and character of the widow of Zarephath?

2. How might we have reacted when placed in a similar position to serve? Reflect upon a timely response you have made to serve. Recall a divine appointment when you have been used to bless, and have been amazingly blessed.

3. How should, and can, we ensure that we respond in faith and with faithfulness to the Spirit of the Lord - first in not missing the chance to bless, then in deepening our commitment to be His 'good and faithful servant' (Matthew 25:23)
