He sat down opposite the treasury, and watched the crowd putting money into the treasury. Many rich people put in large sums. A poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, which are worth a penny. Then he called his disciples and said to them, “Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the treasury. For all of them have contributed out of their abundance; but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, all she had to live on.”- Mark 12: 41-44
God, make me aware of my surroundings today and the way that I give to the world. Open my heart to give more fully to all those around me today. Amen
To see the way your give to the world.
Over the next 21 days, Aldersgate UMC is invited into an intentional time of prayer for ourselves and our community, You will be receiving a daily email (FaceBook blasts too!) with scripture, questions, prayer, and a daily challenge to use during your personal prayer and devotional time. The prayers used will come from a new resource by Justin LaRosa, a UMC Deacon from Hyde Park UMC in Tampa FL. The resource is called “the Jesus Challenge” - 21 Days of loving God and Neighbor. Some other prayers will be adapted to include specific prayers for our Aldersgate community.
