Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you. He sat down opposite the treasury, and watched the crowd putting money into the treasury. Many rich people put in large sums. A poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, which are worth a penny. Then he called his disciples and said to them, “Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the treasury. For all of them have contributed out of their abundance; but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, all she had to live on.” —Mark 12.
True poverty and riches are in our hearts, not our pockets.
Fear is the only prison that prevents us from loving deeply, from giving freely, from living richly.
Generosity is the power that sets us free. It melts the prison bars. It fills the coffers of our hearts.
In generosity, regardless of circumstances, even the penniless are not poor, even the destitute are not alone, even the flat broke are not afraid.
Give everything you have, all you have to live on, and you will be free and unafraid.
Deep Blessings, Pastor Steve
