Our One Minute Wisdom for Today, June 06, 2015
Jesus sat down opposite the treasure and observed how the crowd put money into the treasury.
Many rich people put in LARGE SUMS. A poor widow also came and put in two small coins worth a few cents. Calling His disciples to Himself, He said to them, “AMEN, I SAY TO YOU, THIS POOR WIDOW PUT IN MORE THAN ALL THE OTHER CONTRIBUTORS TO THE TREASURY. FOR THEY HAVE ALL CONTRIBUTED FROM THEIR SURPLUS WEALTH, BUT SHE, FROM HER POVERTY, HAS CONTRIBUTED ALL SHE HAD, HER WHOLE LIVELIHOOD.”
– From the Gospel of Mark 12: 41:44
*How much do we give back to church?
*Do we still include tithing among our priorities?
*Do we still treat our wealth as His blessings?
