The Widows Portion: The arrogance of the Prophet

As I’ve begun looking ahead at 2012, I can’t seem to get away from the story of the Elijah and the widow.

Elijah is on the run from the King, because the prophet proclaimed drought in Israel. For a while he camps out by a brook and has a pretty nice gig where birds feed him every day. Wonder who lost food to the birds? Then he goes on the run from his own prophecy.
