Giving (Luke 20)

Jesus looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the offering box, and he saw a poor widow put in two small copper coins. And he said, “Truly, I tell you, this poor widow has put in more than all of them. For they all contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on.”

God is not impressed with our money, He’s impressed with our heart. He doesn’t care how many dollars you give, He wants you to acknowledge that He is the owner of everything. We give him a 10% off the top to demonstrate that everything we have comes from Him and that we don’t rely on money to survive, we rely on Jesus. When you give, do so from a position of generosity, not obligation. Give with a cheerful heart, not begrudgingly. You’ll be blessed if you do!
