Christian Devotional – September 24, 2012

Mark 12:44–“for they all put in out of their surplus, but she, out of her poverty, put in all she owned, all she had to live on.”

Jesus is explaining the sacrifice involved in a poor woman’s offering. He applauds her faith and trust in God to supply all she needs. When we give to the Lord, are we giving out of our surplus, or are we offering Him everything? Do we look at everything we have as belonging to Him anyway and give back to Him all that He asks without hesitation?

Lord, You own 100% of everything I call mine. There is nothing I have that doesn’t belong to You. Show me how You would like me to spend it. I will give You everything so that You may lead me on how to share it.
