Today our Lord challenges our generosity. He cites the rich giving from their surplus but the poor widow gave her all (Mk. 12:44). How many believers give “drops” from their buckets of wealth but expect a “waterfall” of blessings? How many give but make demands, seek to control, or even convince themselves that what is shared is more than enough? Jesus gave His entire self for our salvation. What is our response in giving for God’s glory?
Lord Jesus, You gave Your life for our benefit. Help us to imitate Your generosity by sharing our blessings without counting the cost, and choose to give because it pleases You. Amen.
