Read Mark 12:41-44
And he sat down opposite the treasury and watched the people putting money into the offering box. Many rich people put in large sums. And a poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, which make a penny. And he called his disciples to him and said to them, “Truly, I say to you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the offering box. For they all contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, all she had to live on.

Prayer: This passage reminds us that God is not asking for a certain dollar amount from us (since he doesn’t actually need our money anyway). Instead, he’s calling us to be sacrificial, following after the widow’s example who gave all (even though it was a small amount). Pray and ask God to help you give sacrificially and generously in a way that acknowledges his provision and trusts him for your every need.

    Lord, show me ways of how I can give more generously of myself to others. May it always be for your glory and may I always continue to grow in the holy spirit and trust you more each day. Blessed be your holy name!
