Will I Go Broke from Being Generous? A Christian Devotional about Giving and Receiving
This devotional is an excerpt taken from my new eBook: "Sandcastles Don't Last Forever".
“And He sat down opposite the [temple] treasury, and began watching how the people were putting money into the treasury. And many rich people were putting in large sums. A poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, which amount to a mite. Calling His disciples to Him, He said to them, “I assure you and most solemnly say to you, this poor widow put in [proportionally] more than all the contributors to the treasury. For they all contributed from their surplus, but she, from her poverty, put in all she had, all she had to live on.”” (MARK 12:41-44 AMP)
In the past when I read or heard the passage above being preached, I would always be inspired by the widow’s faith & generosity and find that it was a pity that she would stay poor - I assumed that her situation wouldn’t change.
However I missed out one important truth: Jesus saw her.
Whenever Jesus saw someone being generous to Him/His Father in heaven, they would receive a blessing of provision that exceeded what they gave.
