2 Kings 4:8 – 44

  1. Verses 8-37. In what ways is the woman of Shunem an example to us?
    What do you learn about the reasons why God allows his servants to undergo acute suffering? What lessons are to be drawn from Gehazi’s failure?
  2. What features in Elisha’s character are brought out by the incidents in this passage?

Note. Verse 42. The present was for Elisha; and if there was still scarcity of food (verse 38), the gift would be the more precious. But Elisha shared it with all who were with him.
