Don't despise the little that God gives you - Dave Olson

The setting:

  • Times were tough Spiritually
  • Times were tough Morally

The problem

  • She had heartache
    • She lost her husband
    • He was a good man
  • She had hardship
    • She was lonely
    • She was burdened
    • She was confused
  • She had helplessness
    • Her sons were to be taken
  • She had hopelessness
    • She could not pay the debt she owed

The petition

  • She didn't say much
  • She cried out to the man of God

The provision

  • It is timely
    • It is not always comfortable
    • It is always perfect
  • It is telling
    • It reveals how God likes to work
    • Little has great potential in the hands of God
  • It is teaming
    • God is able
    • God is unlimited in his resources
  • It is tender
    • God hadn't forgot the widow
    • God is on the side of the afflicted

    • God likes to work behind the scenes
  • A picture of Grace
  • A Picture of Salvation
