Good Deeds for Wholly People

This lesson out of 1 Kings 19 will talk about God’s wisdom in His dealings with the despondent Elijah.  Rather than treating just one part of Elijah’s issue, God paid attention to him as a complex, whole person.  God gave him food and rest, then he listened to him, and then he invited Elijah into His presence.  We must understand both ourselves and the poor as multidimensional beings who must be treated in holistic ways.
