Finishing Faithful

Today's reading: 2 Kings 2:1-14

Elijah was a dedicated servant of God in a time and place when being God's representative wasn't popular, easy or safe. But from the time we're introduced to Elijah (1 Kings 17) until his final breath on earth, the example we see is one of a faithful worker who is bold and zealous for God. Even when he knows that his time on earth is short because God is going to take him to heaven, he doesn't pull back or let up. He continues to fill every moment with serving God. Right up until the moment Elijah is taken away, he is walking and talking with Elisha preparing him to step up and take over for Elijah.

What does Elijah's example show us about serving God well, regardless of our age or stage in life? Would you say that you are making the most of the days God has given you? Are there changes you can make or some things you can you do to serve God even more? Tami
