The widow contributed everything because she understood that God is responsible for all her time, talent and treasure


"For they have all contributed from their surplus wealth, but she, from her poverty, has contributed all she had, her whole livelihood." (Mark 12: 44)

How much are you prepared to contribute to the Lord's work?  3%, 5%, 10% or more?  Jesus Christ praised the widow who was not content to contribute her leftovers but everything.  Although all she had is what has come to be known as the widow's might, she was willing to give it all.

The widow contributed everything because she understood that God is responsible for all her time, talent and treasure.  She trusted in God and knows that she would not be deprived by contributing all her worth.

Lord Jesus, take and receive all my time, talent and treasure as well as all my weaknesses.  I offer them all.  Help me by your grace to hold nothing back.  Amen!
