Widows were the most vulnerable of society. When Jesus saw a widow had lost her only son, Jesus had compassion on her, without her even asking for help. He then raises her son from the dead, unafraid of becoming polluted by being near a dead body because Jesus is the source of life.God is never too busy for us, nor is he unable to do the extraordinary. He does feel compassion on us. And he has the power to set us free from our greatest threat and pollution: sin and death. Therefore, we can be fearless to give the rest of our days to living for the glory of the one who loves us and has raised us to eternal life.
