Affirmation from God

Jesus always notices women who throw  everything they have into the Lord’s work!

Sitting near the treasury at the temple, Jesus drew His disciples’ attention to a poor widow.  She was unaware that Jesus was watching.  She didn’t have to be watched as she gave God everything that she had.  Her two small copper coins would have bought her a morsel of bread or five sparrows to eat (Luke 12: 6-7) but she decided to go hungry and give her money to God instead.  Two small coins weren’t much.  They weren’t noticed, they weren’t appreciated by other people until Jesus came along and saw what she had done and made sure the twelve apostles saw it.  He made sure that Luke and Mark recorded it and that the whole world read about it!  Solomon’s temple would stand without the help of the widow’s coins, but Jesus knew that sort of thing was the stuff of which the kingdom was made.

Jesus always notices the small offerings.  Even if the widow herself didn’t think her offering  was worth the notice.

Have you cast in all you can?  Are you married to a man who will not allow you to serve God as you wish?  Does financial strain limit you to giving little when you desire to give much more?  If you have indeed cast in all you possibly can of your money, time and service ~ God understands.  He affirms you in it.  He says Thank you!

    That’s something we should never forget. If we have little and give little, we are still giving everything we can.

    Most people don’t give because they believe that they don’t have enough to give. We have all been guilty of this. I think that we should realize that we have more than money to give, like our time and love.

    Beautifully written, Debra. Yes, so many people chose not to give or do anything because they think their little bit won’t change much and it doesn’t matter….the reality is we all have something to give no matter how small and how insignificant we think it is. Give and you shall receive…..

    I love that it isn’t a matter of how much we give, but that we give with our whole heart…. lovely!

    We all give by “letting our lives show” every day. 🙂
