Elijah was certain he was right and that he was the only one left who had not gone after Baal. But he was too pessimistic; his faith in God was off-center. We can’t go by our own wisdom. We must trust the Lord and what He has revealed to us in His Word. Think about how this applies to our support of God’s work in the Church with our offering. Look in the Small Catechism’s
Table of Duties to see what the Bible says about our giving.
