Giving

Luke 21
THE WIDOW'S OFFERING
1 While Jesus was in the Temple, he watched the rich people dropping their gifts in the collection box.2 Then a poor widow came by and dropped in two small coins.
  3 "I tell you the truth," Jesus said, "this poor widow has given more than all the rest of them.4 For they have given a tiny part of their surplus, but she, poor as she is, has given everything she has."

Giving is sometimes such a ridiculous thing. When looking at where our money comes form most would say it is from hard work. But working altogether is a gift from God. You see we drive to work with arms and legs given to us by God. We have the ability and talents to do our work as again a gift from God. The money we receive every month is God's money, yet we choose to give God only a little of the abundance He gave us.
We living in a temporary world, we came into this world with nothing and we will leave this world with nothing.
What lies beyond this temporary dwelling is what we must focus on. It is where we will go when we die.
What are you going to say to God when you stand before Him today?


Don't let the opportunity to give God's love to another slip by you today.


To God be all the glory, now and forever.
