How to Get Jesus’ Attention

January 23, 2010 — Leave a comment

“For they all contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty, put in all she had to live on.”

Luke 21:4 (ESV)

Jesus talked more about money and its management and effects upon us than He talked about Heaven or Hell or even prayer.  Shocking?  Money and how we use it is far more spiritual than we ever realized.  In Luke 21, Jesus is literally watching the offering plate.  That alone is offensive to most Christians.  Rich people are making a show of dropping in large amounts, yet Jesus is impressed with the two small coins of a poor widow.  Why?  Because he sees what’s left after we’ve given and not just the amount we give.  The widow gave sacrificially.  Have you ever given to God like that?
