“Jesus looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the offering box, and he saw a poor widow put in two small copper coins. And he said, “Truly, I tell you, this poor widow has put in more than all of them. For they all contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on.”– Luke 21:1-4
True generosity doesn’t come from our excess; it comes from sacrificial hearts. The beauty of this passage is in Jesus’ enthusiasm to point out this woman’s magnanimity out to the disciples. To think that God gets this excited when we’re openhanded is pretty inspiring.
As part of Generous June, we want to know if there’s someone close to you who you have witnessed being especially generous, email stewardship.
