Give More

Sometimes we feel that we do not have enough money. We pay our bills, and we have almost nothing left. It is hard to give money in the church offering.
In our Bible Reading, Jesus sat near the temple money box. He watched the people put their offerings in the box. One woman gave all the money she had. This woman gave two small coins. They were worth only a penny! The woman needed this money to eat and live.
In verse 43 Jesus said, “I tell you the truth. This poor widow gave only two small coins. But she really gave more than all the rich people.” The rich people gave the extra that they did not need. The woman gave everything she had.
We should be like that woman. Everything we have belongs to God. We should give back to God part of what we receive. And, we should give to God first. We should not give God what is left over.
I hope you will give to God. Don’t be like the rich people who gave what they had left. Be like the woman who gave all she had.
