Elisha’s Secret Army

A retelling of 2 Kings, chapter 6

During the time of the prophet Elisha, the neighboring king of Syria had declared war on Israel. However, something went wrong with his campaign. Every time he planned an attack or an ambush, the king of Israel heard about it and prepared for it. 

This happened not once or twice, but so many times that the king of Syria was sure he had a traitor in his camp. Sending for his officers, he said to them angrily, “Who is spying for the king of Israel?”

“Not one of us, O king. It is Elisha, the prophet that is in Israel, who tells the king of Israel the words that you speak in your private quarters,” replied one of his servants who had somehow heard of the power of Elisha's God.

Story: Hurt by Unkindness

Summer had finally arrived, and Kimberly and her friends were going on a camping trip. All the children were looking forward to camping in log cabins, marshmallow roasting, and canoeing along the calm narrow river.

Although the bus ride to the campsite was uneventful, three of the loudest students were huddled together for most of the trip, laughing and whispering among themselves. They seemed to be plotting something for this camping trip. Kimberly was quiet and studious, and so she ignored the whisperings and kept to herself throughout the drive. 

In the past, Kimberly had been the object of practical and unkind jokes. She would often attempt to brush them off, believing—hoping—that as long as she tried to be agreeable, her classmates would begin to like her, talk with her, and include her. Her family life did not facilitate her making new friends: she was the eldest of a rather large family, and because her father was away on frequent business trips, she was often expected to help with her younger siblings. Her classmates, however, had no idea of the responsibility she had to take on at such a young age.
