I had a moment this morning that I experienced and I knew I wanted to savor.
We were taking a door offering at church for flood relief in South Carolina and a man, who was bound to a wheel chair, but always making a joyful noise since he started coming a while back, held out his hand to put money in. I brought the basket closer and he dropped in some change and said, “God Bless you.”
It didn’t matter the amount, but it was simply the gesture. He was giving all that he had to help another.
It reminded me of this passage of Scripture:
“Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts. 42 But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a few cents.
43 Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, ‘Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. 44 They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything—all she had to live on.’” – Mark 12:41-44
I don’t know his story, but his actions spoke clearer than he would ever be able to do on his own. He reminded me that whatever I have to give to God is more than enough! That is a moment I want to savor!
