The Widow’s Offering

Luke 21 God has his eye on his children and his eye is on the wee sparrow. In fact God knows about each sparrow who falls to the ground and he knows each hair on our heads because we are of more value than many sparrows. [Matt 10:31]. So it is no wonder that in Luke 21 we see that Jesus’ eye is on the precious widow and her trek to the offering box. He knew her poverty but out of her poverty she became rich in the sight of God. Notice what Jesus reveals to us about this precious widow.

Some principles we can glean from just these four verses are that when we love much we are willing to sacrifice much and secondly our giving reveals our true heart. Remember God does not need our money but it is our privilege to give to his work. God loves the cheerful giver and this dear widow’s heart must have been overflowing with the joy as she gave to the Lord’s work. And this verse’s principle extends to the reason why found in [Psa 68:5] He is a father to the fatherless and an advocate for widows.

[Luk 6:38] “Give, and it will be given to you: A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be poured into your lap. For the measure you use will be the measure you receive.”
