Mark 12:41-44 Devotion by Stephen Taylor

Mark 12:41-44

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.”

 

Are you putting everything you have into the Lord’s hands or just what you can afford to lose? I love this story for many reasons, but the main one is this woman’s heart. Not only did she give all her money, but I’m sure she had to humble herself to even go and give what little she had. So, to me, it wasn’t just her money she threw in there but also her pride and fear.

 

Are we a people who will do anything to honor and trust in Jesus, or do we just give what we can spare? Are we holding onto part of our lives or giving it all to Him? These are questions I need to ponder and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal to me, and I encourage you to do the same!!! God bless my brothers and sisters in Christ!!!!

 

I love you all, God bless, and glory to God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit!
