Sunday to Monday | Giving out of Poverty

Then he called his disciples and said to them, 

Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the treasury. For all of them have contributed out of their abundance; but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, all she had to live on.’ 

Mark 12:43,44

On Sunday Pastor Dave referred to Richard J. Leider and David A. Shapiro's book “Repacking your Bags."  How much stuff do you unnecessarily carry around?  Does all of it make you happy?  How willing are you to give all that you have to God like the poor widow...not just giving out of your plenty but being able to release a tight grip that allows us to be relaxed in response to trusting God fully?    

Some questions to think about this week

  • Why would Jesus care about our generosity? (Mark 12:41
  • How much of your treasure would you need to offer to impress Jesus? (Mark 12:43
  • Do your credit card bills, checkbook, investments and overall net worth reflect that Jesus is a priority in your life? How might your finances make a stronger faith statement? 
  • Pray upon how God might transform you anew by how you allocate your finances this Christmas season.
