- King Ahab led Israel, and he was wicked. The Lord sent a famine to try to call the people to repentance.
- At first it might seem hard to understand why the prophet Elijah asked the widow in Zarephath to give him food and water before feeding herself and her starving son.

- How do we feel when we are asked to sacrifice?
How can I follow the widow’s example?
- After the widow helped Elijah, her son became sick and died.
- What did the widow do? What did Elijah do?
- The woman had great faith to ask Elijah for help again. She could have become angry that something bad had happened to her son after she helped the prophet, but she didn’t.
- Our loved ones may not come back to life immediately, but because of Jesus Christ, we will all be resurrected.

How can I have faith when things seem difficult?
- The entire land was in a drought and famine as punishment for wickedness.

- Do you ever feel like you should do something because others are doing it, even when you think it might be wrong?
