TEXT: LUKE 21:1–4 (NLT)
While Jesus was in the Temple, he watched the rich people dropping their gifts in the collection box. Then a poor widow came by and dropped in two small coins. “I tell you the truth,” Jesus said, “this poor widow has given more than all the rest of them. For they have given a tiny part of their surplus, but she, poor as she is, has given every- thing she has.”
It’s not the size of the gift, but the motivation of the heart behind the gift. As you are giving of yourself today, are you giving a portion of your best or everything you have?
“God, I may not have much to give, but I give it all to You. Today, I choose to hold nothing back.” TAKEAWAY:
Are you really willing to give God everything? Are you more concerned about what you can gain than what you can give?
SOCIAL MEDIA POST:
God doesn’t favor the rich. He weighs the heart, not the possessions. Give generously according to what you have. #youthalive
