A Meaningful Sacrifice

From Day 7 of the 20 Day Devotional...

Jesus watched people giving their financial gifts at the temple. Many men dropped in large gifts. But one woman dropped in only two coins. Jesus said that the largest gift was from the woman because she gave everything she had. The devotional conncludes...

Commitments are not about equal gifts, but about an equal sense of sacrifice. Not everyone has the ability (the resources) to make a multi-million dollar gift; but every person does have the ability and the opportunity to meaningfully invest themselves in what God is doing in their church. In terms of the commitment, rather than the amount,...ask yourself this question... would God be honored if every person in this church made a sacrifice equal to my own?
