Giving All You Have

In October of last year, we marked our one hundred thirty-five-year history with an anniversary banquet. We are now embarking upon a new era. I continue to urge the church to be diligent with their giving, but it is important that we give a sacrificial offering. It is not equal giving but equal sacrifice. In Mark 12:44, we find these words:

‘‘For they gave a tiny part of their surplus, but she, poor as she is, has given everything she had to live on.’”

Jesus shared this poor widow’s wonderful expression of love. This faithful woman gave all that she had with gratitude. It is my prayer today that the gifts that we give represent our love and sacrifice to God. Prayerfully, because of our faith,  we have come to a point in our lives where we can give the Master our all. It’s not the size of the gift, but the heart of the giver that counts.
