The Little of the Righteous

Psalm 37:17 ” The little that the righteous has is better than great riches of the wicked.

Mark 12:41-44 ” And He sat down opposite the treasury and began observing how the multitude were putting money into the treasury, many rich people were putting in much and poor widow came and put in all she had, two copper coins and He said, ” This poor widow put in more that all the contributors for they all gave out of surplus be she out of her poverty put in all she owned. ”

When you think you are giving little, but it is so much of what you have, remind yourself of the poor widow that gave all she had. You see giving out of your abundance, your surplus is not really giving. The Lord is seeking and testing you to see if you are willing to go all the way with your finances. For what sacrifice is there to give from your surplus. But the one that gives from his or her all and really sacrifices and stretches one’s faith in giving is what the Lord is seeking. What is your God? For you cannot love this world and God at the same time? Where is your security? Is your security in the things of this world or is your faith and security in Jesus? Friend where is your faith? So the next time you think less of yourself because you can’t give as the rich do examine where you give from. God is always in control.

Mid-Week Prayer ” Many times Lord I fear that giving too much will cause me to be short and then I am reminded of the “poor widow”. Father give me the courage to give more, to exercise my faith, and to move forward in giving. Lord may thy will be done. “
