Live generously

Sunday June 9th, 1 Kings 17: 17 After this the son of the woman, the mistress of the house, became ill; his illness was so severe that there was no breath left in him. 18 She then said to Elijah, “What have you against me, O man of God? You have come to me to bring my sin to remembrance, and to cause the death of my son!” This was the son who, along with his mother, was going to die in the famine and whom Elijah convinced to bake a little bread for him.   Elijah had been staying with them and they brought him life as he brought them life.  Now the son had died.  This was a tragic event to be sure, and one that calls us to remember the fragility of life and all we hold dear.  What will you do today with this fragile life of yours? We know that in the story God intervenes and the child is brought back to life, but that is not always the case.  There are times when tragedy strikes and that is the full extent of it, tragedy.  With the gift you have that is today, live your life as a child of God.  Live generously, live lovingly, live free and forgiven and knowing that for today, you can be a blessing to others.
