Reflections for Sunday, June 16, 2013
1 Kings 21:1–10, (11–14), 15–21a
“The word of [God] came to Elijah the Tishbite…”
Trying to find a quotation in this reading was a reminder that some stories are difficult. There is not much “nice” in the story of Ahab, Jezebel, and Naboth. Life is like that sometimes – things happen where there is no joy, no happy ending. Yet somehow God is present in all of it. And, as we see in this story, God is always demanding justice.
- Think of a time when it seemed nothing was going right, or a time when it seemed injustice was winning.
- How did God’s presence make itself manifest?
