What makes Jesus’ story so powerful in today’s scripture, is not the amount of the gift from the widow, but the fact she gave all she had. I believe this speaks of faith. While others gave from what they had left, she gave from all she had, and she gave it with an attitude of gratitude. I know that God does not need our gifts, but we give our gifts in acknowledgement that all we have belongs to him.
What is your attitude toward giving? Are you a cherry giver or a reluctant giver? Maybe part of Lent is to examine our hearts when it comes to giving. Jesus challenged the disciples to reflect on what they had observed that day, and he challenges us to reflect on this scripture today. Blessings to all of you and have a great day!
Prayer: Jesus, I choose to follow your Way of Peace. Lead me to one person that I can love, give hope, and bring your peace to today. Amen!
Thank you Loida for adding the photo so we could see it; really makes a point. Have so appreciated the Lenten devotions. Hope I can get someone to walk me through the display next week on FT. Hate to miss it in person. May God bless and keep you , Jim, and Krystina for your thoughtfulness in preparing these messages.
