[21:1] As he looked up, Jesus saw the rich putting their gifts into the temple treasury. He also saw a poor widow put in two very small copper coins. “I tell you the truth,” he said, “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.”
Jesus is telling us, all those people gave their gifts out of their wealth; but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on.
How much we will give back to God?
Doesn\’t matter how much you give to God, 10 or 20 percent of God given wealthâ€¦ We don’t give because God “needs” our contribution. We give in order to honor him with our substance. Whether large or small, we give to worship God. God looks at your heart. God looks at your ability to give. And God desires to be proud of your giving, no matter how poor you are. If you give in proportion to your income, out of love and faith that will please God. We misunderstand the economics of the laws of God.
Sirach: Ch 35 (6-14) says” Don’t come into the Lord’s presence empty-handed, since fulfilling the commandments means making offerings. The righteous person’s offering enriches the altar, and its pleasing odor comes before the Most High. A righteous person’s offering is acceptable, and its memory will last forever. Honor the Lord generously, and don’t skimp on the early produce you present. Every time you give, have a cheerful face, and dedicate your tithe gladly. Give to the Most High as he has given, and give with generosity from what you have, because the Lord is the one who repays, and he will repay you seven times over.”
Have you given God your all, whether large or small? If you have, then you know the racing heart of trusting God for the next step, the next meal, the next project……
