Recently, I received this in the mail… it made me cry as I sat in my vehicle looking at this person’s letter and gift. I couldn’t help but think of the the Widow in the Gospel of Luke who puts her two coins in the collection at the temple. I don’t know this person’s financial situation, I don’t know what they may be going through, but this touched my heart greatly and I sat there, in the midst of my busy day, and took a moment to pray over this person, pray increase and blessings on them for their sacrificial giving and their heart! Oh, what a precious heart! Their words blessed me and their monetary gift will bless my school babies.
NEVER discount what you have to offer!
NEVER discount the gift you have to give as insignificant or small!
NEVER discount your ability to be a blessing because you only have “two pennies” or so to give!
God can do far more with “two pennies” given in obedience and a servant’s heart than with a “million pennies” given from a place of disobedience and pride. In giving, it’s the heart that matters most!
Thanks to this person’s gift, 5 babies will have hats to keep them warm in the cold days ahead! So far, thanks to the generosity of my Facebook friends, 80+ children will now have everything from Coats to Hats and Scarves to keep them warm in the months ahead!!!
God is so good and sharing his love through giving to others who are in need is just so life changing!!!!! God can use you ANYWHERE to shine His love and light! Be obedient, be generous with what you’ve been given, be faithful where you are placed!
“Just then he looked up and saw the rich people dropping offerings in the collection plate. Then he saw a poor widow put in two pennies. He said, “The plain truth is that this widow has given by far the largest offering today. All these others made offerings that they’ll never miss; she gave extravagantly what she couldn’t afford—she gave her all!” Luke 21:1-4 MSG
