Give Until it Hurts

What does God deserve?  Everything.  What do we actually give?  If we are honest, we give very little in comparison to what we have.

When Jesus looked up he saw some wealthy people
putting their offerings into the treasury
and he noticed a poor widow putting in two small coins.
He said, “I tell you truly,
this poor widow put in more than all the rest;
for those others have all made offerings from their surplus wealth,
but she, from her poverty, has offered her whole livelihood.”

If giving doesn’t hurt, it is not sacrificial.  Jesus gave everything so that we can be saved.

Give until it hurts.
