19So he set out from there, and found Elisha son of Shaphat, who was plowing. There were twelve yoke of oxen ahead of him, and he was with the twelfth. Elijah passed by him and threw his mantle over him. 20He left the oxen, ran after Elijah, and said, “Let me kiss my father and my mother, and then I will follow you.” Then Elijah said to him, “Go back again; for what have I done to you?” 21He returned from following him, took the yoke of oxen, and slaughtered them; using the equipment from the oxen, he boiled their flesh, and gave it to the people, and they ate. Then he set out and followed Elijah, and became his servant. (1 Kings 19:19-21, NRSV)
Have you ever been called by God to do something?
Elisha was given the mantle of Elijah but asked to go back. And when he went back he killed the oxen and fed the people.
Then he followed after God.
Sometimes it is scary for us to leave what we have known and go where we do not know anyone or anything. But God is always with us.
