God Doesn’t Measure Gifts with a Scale but with a Thermometer

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.”

God doesn’t measure gifts with a scale, but with a thermometer. He looks at the size of the sacrifice, not the size of the denomination. People can only see that which is given, but God sees that which is kept. This woman has given more than all the rich because she has kept nothing.

Do you give to God and the needs of the world based on what you can afford or out of the abundant blessings of God which He calls us to self-sacrifice?
