Reflecting on God’s Word …

Mark 12:41-44 NLT

Jesus sat down near the collection box in the Temple and watched as the crowds dropped in their money. Many rich people put in large amounts. Then a poor widow came and dropped in two small coins. Jesus called his disciples to him and said, “I tell you the truth, this poor widow has given more than all the others who are making contributions. For they gave a tiny part of their surplus, but she, poor as she is, has given everything she had to live on.”

Reflection

She gave everything she had!

How many people, how many of us are giving merely out of our surplus or wealth?

When it comes to giving, rarely do people give sacrificially. We tend to give from the extra that we have left over. Sacrificial giving is honored by the Lord and he abundantly blesses those who trust him to provide all they need, even through giving all we have to the Lord.

What is the Lord asking you you give sacrificially for?
