1Kings 17:13 And Elijah said unto her, Fear not; go and do as thou hast said: but make me thereof a little cake first, and bring it unto me, and after make for thee and for thy son.
The lady is about ready to eat her last meal. The entire country is in crisis. Elijah shows up and tells her that God is going to meet her need.
He then tells her to go make her food, which she believes will be her last meal. Elijah says well make me a little cake first.
Honor God with what you have before you take for yourselves and see what God will do in your life. That was the basic instruction here.
I wonder how often you consider honoring God with what you have before you take care of yourself, your needs and wants. I wonder how often God gets what is left over if anything at all instead of what comes first.
A great truth to learn is, Give to God first. Seek first His kingdom and then He will add to you all these things Matthew 6:33.
