GIVE GOD YOUR BEST NOT YOUR LEFTOVERS
7th Nov 2021
“Amen, I say to you, this poor widow put in more than all the other contributors to the treasury. For they have all contributed from their surplus wealth, but she, from her poverty, has contributed all she had, her whole livelihood.” The giving of the others came out of their excess. Do you find yourself giving God the leftovers of your money? The Lord watches how much we give and weighs the heart not the gift. He measures the proportion, not the portion. Those who give like “the widow” give their best not their least.
Lord Jesus, you teach us that you love generous hearts; make us generous in our support of Church missions and ministries.
Lord, in your mercy; hear our prayer. Amen
