Giving your all

Have you ever notice it to be easy to praise God when things are going great? You know, like a new good paying job after being unemployed to months! Or going on that long overdue vacation for the first time in years. It is easy to worship God when things are going good and we are happy. A part of that worship is our offering. When we have plenty we give plenty and when we have little we give little. Sounds reasonable, or does it?
You have heard God does not need your money, especially since it is all his anyway. He does need us to trust him and have faith to provide for us. A good example of that kind of faith is found in Luke 21:1-4 “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.”

Do you think this poor widow was doing her best to worship God with her offering? As she gave everything, she trusted God with her everything. Now that is faith!

But how can we tap into that kind of faith? We have to learn what God has planned for us through study His word. Like when Jesus disciples had the same questions 2,000 years ago. They gave up all their jobs and income and worldly possessions to follow Him this is what He told them… But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. (Matthew 6:33 NIV)

Until next time….
