The Rich Widow

12 Jun

Luke 21:1  “And He looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the treasury, 2 and He saw also a certain poor widow putting in two mites. 3 So He said, “Truly I say to you that this poor widow has put in more than all; 4 for all these out of their abundance have put in offerings for God, but she out of her poverty put in all the livelihood that she had.”

God gave me a revelation about this story.  First, God loves a cheerful giver.

Second, Jesus never mentioned that she would get that money back, (although you know God made it up to her).  Sometimes, we will be poor down here if we live like Christ commands.

Third, those preachers that beg for money saying those that give will get back 20 fold or whatever… (sowing seed is what they call it) are really sowing themselves a bad spot in eternity.  The chapter before proves just that.
