Luke 21:2 “I tell you this poor widow put in more than all the others”
Jesus tells us about his observation of people giving at the temple in Luke’s Gospel. Proverbs 3:9 ‘Honour the LORD by making an offering from the best of all that your land produces.’ Do you wish to ‘Honour’ God? Or is honouring your bank account and lifestyle more important? We all need to pray about our giving, is it done out of our worldly reasoning alone? Jesus tells us further in Luke 21:3 ‘… poor as she is, gave all she had to live on’ One may reason “This is contextual theology…..just an example that Jesus was making…..really not meant to be taken literally.”The question remains – are you really honouring God? Or is giving a reluctant heart gesture that you tolerate? Can you really trust that God is your true provider? 2 Corinthians 9:7 ‘Each one of you should give, then, as he has decided, not with regret or out of a sense of duty, for God loves the one who gives gladly.’ Bless you.
