A Daily Devotion for Thursday, December 8

Luke 21:1-4

As Jesus looked up, he saw the rich putting their gifts into the temple treasury. He also saw a poor widow put in two very small copper coins. "Truly I tell you," he said, "this poor widow has put in more than all the others. All these people gave their gifts out of their wealth; but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on."

These verses have always made me uncomfortable because I have never been in that position. It is more than just generosity for her, it is true faith in the Lord. She does not fear giving up worldly comforts because she knows God will provide for her. I don't think God wants us all to be poor, putting our last pennies into the plate. But he wants us to have faith He will provide for us, and to step out of our comfort zone in generosity.

Father God, your grace and generosity are beyond my understanding. Help me to be more generous, and to worry less about the consequences. Amen

Becky, transforming
