A Great Woman

Spread the love

2 Kings 4:8 “And it fell on a day, that Elisha passed to Shunem, where was a great woman; and she constrained him to eat bread. And so it was, that as oft as he passed by, he turned in thither to eat bread.”

If I were to ask you who is ‘great’ in today’s world, you would probably name some film star, or sports star, or some wealthy successful businesswoman or man, or a good-looking model. For those are the types of things that our world flocks to and sees as important. It is those types of people that are ‘great’ in our age. But take note that these are all things that God puts no weight or emphasis on at all. When the Bible says “great,” it is not the greatness as defined by this world.

You see, in the verse above, a woman stood out as great in the eyes of God. Amongst all the people living in her town, there was something extraordinary about this lady that made her stand out amongst others. The Bible recognized her as great. So what made this woman great? If you will read the whole chapter of 2 Kings 4, you will see that what makes her great in the eyes of God is her good old-fashioned kindness! Whenever Elisha passed through their town, she made sure he had a place to eat. But it didn’t stop there. Before long, Elisha not only had a place to eat, but a place to stay, for this woman organized with her husband to build an extra room onto her house for Elisha! Her very act is what our Lord Jesus call “If you do it unto the least of my brethren, you do it unto me”. And this is what makes her great in the eyes of God!
