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 everything she has.” Lk 21:2-4. God sees the heart. Generous people are a blessing to others who will also be blessed and have more to give. However stingy people hold back even from their own families and never have enough whilst always living with a fear of lack. Yet what manner of love has God lavished on us that we should be called children of God. 1Jn3:1. Our heavenly Father has made a way through His Son that we will never lack. Thank Him today that we can never out give God and that what ever we give with a right heart will always come back in far greater measure.
