Sweeter Than Honey is a 365-day devotional journey that leads the reader
I’m not sure that this would fall under the “reproof, for correction” category, but possibly the “teaching” and/or “training in righteousness” categories. So what can we learn from the story of the axe head today?
The first thing I see in this passage is the recognition of the problem and the acknowledgment of authority. The sons of the prophets recognized that there was a problem. They saw that the place they were dwelling was too small for them. So, they came up with a solution, but they did not act on it until they went to the Prophet Elisha with their petition.
The second thing I see is teamwork. The sons of the prophets did not act as individuals—they were a team. Teamwork makes the dream work, right?
The third thing is an invitation. Once Elisha agreed that this thing should be done, the sons of the prophets invite the prophet to accompany them.
When I read God’s Word each morning, I find inspiration and insight that keeps my day on track. Join me on this journey. Let’s settle in with His Word—it’s His Love Letter to us. Did you know that? Let’s read it like a Love Letter, expecting to glean something for our walk with Him every day. Let’s look for peace in the chaos and strength for our weaknesses. Even on our busiest days we can carve out a few minutes to refocus on the important. Can’t we? We may have to get up a little earlier, when the house is still and quiet, or stay up a few minutes after the others are tucked in for the night, but we can do this! I know we can!
