“Sitting across from the offering box, he was observing how the crowd tossed money in for the collection. Many of the rich were making large contributions. One poor widow came up and put in two small coins—a measly two cents. Jesus called his disciples over and said, “The truth is that this poor widow gave more to the collection than all the others put together. All the others gave what they’ll never miss; she gave extravagantly what she couldn’t afford—she gave her all.””
I love this passage! Especially when it says “she gave her all”. How much have you given God lately? This woman may have given all her money but I believe she gave all her heart to. She was like “all my chips are in” she wasn’t turning back. Maybe she caught a glimpse of Jesus and fell in love or maybe she was so desperate she was willing to give anything to get herself to a better place. Either way what she did was precious. She gave Jesus her all.
I bet some of you reading this can think of more ways to give your all. Have you given up your most prized possessions yet? The Lady with the alabaster box did. She gave her all too. Even her time and effort to show love to Jesus. Tanglable love. Not just a Facebook message. Lol.
I believe there are many people that God wants us to touch but it’s on the other side of our giving. Stuff is just stuff but when given to others it can display love and make people feel special. What’s something you can do today for someone else? And maybe God wants you to give up a bit of your time to go help or love someone. Sometimes we as Gods people are the only bible people see. Does our life reflect Jesus well? I hope so. If not, show someone love and time today. Maybe even bless someone. Believe me you will get more joy out of it too. Give your widows mite today and see what God does with it. You’ll be surprised!!!
