2015-06-20 - The Widow's Offering
In the Gospel of Luke, we find the story of the widow's offering. Jesus watched a poor widow put two small coins into the temple treasury. At the same time, the rich were depositing their gifts into the collection. Jesus then said, "I tell you the truth; this poor widow has put in more than all the others. All these people gave their gifts out of their wealth, but she - out of her poverty - put in all she had to live on." (Luke 21:3-4)
What do we offer to God?
Naturally, we think of money. But God wants more than our financial resources. God desires us to give what is inside our hearts. God wants our love and devotion. He also expects our time. What is God calling you to give to Him today?
