Now Elisha served under Elijah’s mentorship, he learned the ins and outs of what he was called to do because he was willing to sit under the teachings of Elijah.

Are you faithful with the small task that God gave you even if you don’t get the glory or credit that you think you should receive?
Are you going to do what is asked of you whether or not you get the credit? Take the time to self-reflect and evaluate who you really are and what type of heart you have.
