The purpose of this series is to help you discover or re-discover the passion and the joy of reading the Bible. We looked at the world behind, of and in front of the text for 2 Kings 6:1-7. God is using this story to remind everyone... everyone... not just Kings and generals, but everyone... that He is paying close attention to the details of our lives... even the 'losing an axe head' sort of details. It is so easy to fall under the false impression that I am not worthy... I am not important enough... I am not making enough of a wake in the world to be worthy of God's intimate care. And this story tells us that this couldn't be further from the truth. This story says that in the midst of a world where huge forces are constantly pushing things back and forth, God still sees you, your struggles... your lost axe heads. And He not only sees you, He understands your situation and He cares and if we're paying close attention we'll soon see that He is doing unimaginable things to let us know He loves us. That is why this story is included in a Biblical history book: it tells is the truth about God!
