Elisha, the prophet, appointed a cook. He had many hungry mouths to feed. “He said to his attendant, ‘Put on the large pot and make stew for the sons of the prophets.’ One went out to the field to gather herbs and found a wild vine from which he gathered as many wild gourds as his garment would hold. Then he came back and cut them up into the pot of stew, but they were unaware [of what they were] (2 Kings 4:38b-39 HCS).”
The prophets commenced, with much ado, about the pot of stew. “There’s death in the pot, man of God!’ And they were unable to eat it (2 Kings 4:40b HCS).” The peril of food poisoning alerted God’s servant. “Then Elisha said, ‘Get some meal.’ He threw it into the pot and said, ‘Serve it for the people to eat.’ And there was nothing bad in the pot (2 Kings 4:41HCS).”
The masses hunger for soul food. The Lord’s church consists of potholders. It is our duty and privilege to pass the pots. The Master has filled each vessel with the bread of life; He liberally adds living water and seasons with ample dashes of grace. I think I hear the voice of my Bible-Belt Baptist preacher… “Brothers and sisters, it’s supper time. Praise the Lord and pass the pots!”
