Which mother boiled and ate her own son? 😱

Answer: A woman of Samaria 

2 Kings‬ ‭6:24-33‬ ‭KJV‬‬

And it came to pass after this, that Ben-hadad king of Syria gathered all his host, and went up, and besieged Samaria. And there was a great famine in Samaria: and, behold, they besieged it, until an ass's head was sold for fourscore pieces of silver, and the fourth part of a cab of dove's dung for five pieces of silver. And as the king of Israel was passing by upon the wall, there cried a woman unto him, saying, Help, my Lord, O king. And he said, If the LORD do not help thee, whence shall I help thee? out of the barnfloor, or out of the winepress? And the king said unto her, What aileth thee? And she answered, This woman said unto me, Give thy son, that we may eat him to day, and we will eat my son to morrow. So we boiled my son, and did eat him: and I said unto her on the next day, Give thy son, that we may eat him: and she hath hid her son. And it came to pass, when the king heard the words of the woman, that he rent his clothes; and he passed by upon the wall, and the people looked, and, behold, he had sackcloth within upon his flesh. Then he said, God do so and more also to me, if the head of Elisha the son of Shaphat shall stand on him this day. But Elisha sat in his house, and the elders sat with him; and the king sent a man from before him: but ere the messenger came to him, he said to the elders, See ye how this son of a murderer hath sent to take away mine head? look, when the messenger cometh, shut the door, and hold him fast at the door: is not the sound of his master's feet behind him? And while he yet talked with them, behold, the messenger came down unto him: and he said, Behold, this evil is of the LORD; what should I wait for the LORD any longer?”

People Who Violate His Laws

“If He condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah…having made them an example to those who would live ungodly lives thereafter; and if He rescued righteous Lot…then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from temptation, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment for the day of judgment.” - 2 Peter 2:6-9.

Thoughts for Today

Abraham learned that God is a God of promises, laws, and covenants—that His Word always is true. But he also learned that His agreements are conditional. If we want to receive His promises, we must do our part.

Abraham also learned what happens to people who violate His laws. He discovered that God could not condone sin and that His standards could not change. He also saw that people determined if they would be blessed or cursed, based on the choices they made.

Abraham witnessed these principles firsthand when God judged Sodom and Gomorrah. These cities were not interested in His laws or in righteousness or morality. They decided to be “tolerant” of sin and live according to their own rules, with an “anything goes” attitude.

Sadly, these twisted standards remind us of the world today. As we look around, we see whole societies that reject God’s laws and the whole concept of “right and wrong.” We see people acting without restraint, thinking they can do whatever they want.

But God’s judgment of Sodom and Gomorrah reminds us that He is holy, and His standards are eternal. We see that, whenever we violate His laws, we suffer the consequences. Yet in this judgment, we also see how He “rescued righteous Lot.”

Don’t allow your life to be corrupted by ungodliness or immorality. Live according to God’s truth and His eternal principles. Seek to be a good example—a person who testifies to the greatness of God and the truth of His Word.

Prayer : Our Loving Heavenly Father, 
I honor You. I exalt You. I willingly submit my life to live according to Your Word. Forgive my sins. Help me impact others with Your truth. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."
