Giving When It’s Hard to Give


Sometimes we give out of our wealth… not our monetary wealth necessarily, but out of our surplus of emotion and thought.

Other times we give when we feel it is very hard to give, when each day feels like we are fighting to survive.

I am reminded of the widow and her two mites.

Luke 21:4
As Jesus looked up, he saw the rich putting their gifts into the temple treasury. He also saw a poor widow put in two very small copper coins. “Truly I tell you,” he said, “this poor widow has put in more than all the others. All these people gave their gifts out of their wealth; but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on.”

If it is hard for you to give right now, I want to encourage you.

The Lord sees you!

Jesus said that the widow gave more than all the others that she gave all she had to live on.

God is watching, and He sees your life.  He knows how much you are giving, and it is a sweet sacrifice to Him.
