The Widow’s Offering
"Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts. But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a few cents.
Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, “Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything—all she had to live on.”"
-Mark 12:41-44 NIV
When giving money back to God, it's not about the amount we give but the heart behind it. God allows us to partner with Him and that is a great privilege. He promises to provide for us and return our tithes and offerings back to us with great blessings. That doesn't necessarily mean we get more money back if we give (although God can and does do that), it simply means that he cares about our generosity and rewards those who give. The fact that Jesus sat near the collection box tells us that God cares about how we steward the financial gifts he has given us.
We're compelled by the example of Jesus to be a generous type of people. Generous with our time, our attention, and even our money. Within our church family it's our vision to share enough so that everyone has everything they need. In addition to that, we are invested in supplying needs in our community, country, and beyond!
