Today's reading: 2 Kings 4:1-7

Sometimes the best way for us to respond to someone in need is to simply pray. But there are many times when taking action (paired with prayer) is really what a person in distress needs. That's what we see with Elisha and the prophet's widow. Confronted with a plea for help from this desperate widow, Elisha listens to her request and then takes action which helps her get out of debt and provide for her family.

There are people in need all around us. So who in your church, school, workplace, neighborhood or family needs help? In addition to prayer, what action can you take to help a person in need this Thanksgiving and Christmas season? Tami
