As the collection plate was being passed around at church, I pulled my wallet out to get my offering. I was deep in thought about how much I could afford. When I felt a tap on my arm from my friend sitting next to me. As I turned my head towards her, I saw her handing me two dollars. ” Is this your offering? ” I said. She nodded and said, ”Yes.” Praise God for using my friend to show me how to give. You see my friend is homeless and lives on the streets. She has no income at all. The two dollars she gave was everything she had. But she gave it with no hesitation. She knows that God will supply all her needs.
Dear Lord, Please forgive me for rationing my offering by what I thought I could afford. Help me to give freely and generously knowing that you will always provide my needs. I claim your promise Philippians 4:19; My God will use his wonderful riches in Christ Jesus to give you everything you need.
