Read Luke Chapter 21 (you can use a Bible you have, or follow the link)
Here in this chapter are some difficult concepts about things that are to happen at the end of time. But the chapter begins with a story with a simpler message to grasp. Jesus notices the offering of the widowed woman and comments that she gave her all, while those with more gave relatively less. A simple challenge perhaps especially at Christmas time when there are opportunities to give to charitable and church causes. If our loose change is just that… have we really given anything of ourselves? Jesus asks that we give sacrificially. But how much is that..? Well it’s when we notice it ourselves and it hurts a little!
With love, truth and light… this Advent-tide
