Running on empty? Ready to chase your dreams or start a new chapter in your life, but you can’t see beyond your limited resources? Out of energy, out of money, out of hope. Sometimes we just feel like our resources have run out on us and we have no way forward.
In 2 Kings 4:1-7 we meet a woman in such a dire place. She’s a widow with debts she cannot pay. In those times, there was no option of bankruptcy. If you couldn’t pay, the law allowed the creditor to make you or your children indentured servants to fulfill the debt. She has no money to pay her creditors, so they’re coming to take her sons as payment.
Imagine the grief and sorrow of losing a spouse, coupled with the desperation of not having any means to support yourself and your children. This woman wanted to provide for her sons and keep them out of slavery, yet here she was facing the next visit by her creditors who would surely take away her sons, and with them, her chance at any kind of future.
