Moody Church Hour with Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

Empty Cupboards, Empty Stomachs... (Famines, Deserts and other Hard Places)

October 16, 2016

It’s been said that if all the tears people ever cried could be gathered up, they’d fill an ocean. Life does have its joys, but God brings tears as well, because through tears we learn to depend on Him for every breath, every bite of food, and every dollar in our wallets. Let’s look at a story of famine and crisis, and how God met a woman’s needs.
