The Value of Small Things
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." Luke 21:1–4, NIV
"Let me throw in my two cents.” I’ve said it often in conversation. Sadly, my best often feels like two cents’ worth, especially when the needs of others seem mammoth. A friend battles cancer. A child has a learning disability. A spouse loses a job. A parent faces Alzheimer’s. I want to help, but can my quiet prayers, meager strength and tiny acts of love really make a difference?
FAITH STEP: Prayerfully choose a ministry in your church or community and send a contribution, even if all you can share seems tiny. Ask God to multiply your efforts.
