Wig’s Word of God Today 11-21-2011
Others have all made offerings from their surplus wealth, but she, from her poverty, has offered her whole livelihood. Luke 21:4
Daniel 1:1-20 & Luke 21:1-4
My wife was reading excerpts from a book about Mother Theresa the other day and she said something that struck a cord with me as I listened. She read a part about how a wealthy people had asked how they could do more in giving and Mother Theresa told them the next time they buy a suit or a silk scarf they should buy one that is less expensive and give the rest to the poor. When you give until it hurts, then you are giving a part of your livelihood that doesn’t go unnoticed by God.
Since this is the week of Thanksgiving, I’m sending out a challenge to my friends and lovers of God’s Truth to look for something you can do this week that gives until it hurts. Maybe you’ll tell a homeless person you’ll bring them a plate of food on Thanksgiving or offer to buy them a hotel room for the night to give them a warm shower. Maybe you’ll share a pie with them you baked from scratch. Maybe you’ll travel around your home and look for people who are in need and give them some fresh clothes. When you love your love of Christ, giving until it hurts feels so good for you are doing it all for the Glory of God. Amen.
So we ask in prayer: Dear God, we pray today we can offer the livelihood of our lives’ to share Your Truth. We pray for Roberto Soriano and his needs to be blessed by You LORD. We pray for Prayer Points to give people hope for God’s Truth. We pray for LIFE FM and the DJ’s who bring their flare for Your Gospel to the radio waves of Miami. We pray for the children of the world and the people who teach them Your love. We pray LORD for the serenity to accept the things we cannot change, courage to change the things we can, and wisdom to know the difference. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
God Bless His Truth for America,

“Spirit led God inspired Christ fed“
A Widow Who Trusts the LORD with Her All- Luke 21:1-4
Jesus watched the wealthy add their tithe
The plate was ringing with their sinful little lies
As the poor widow added all she learned to hide
Giving her livelihood before God’s tearful eyes
‘I tell you truly’ Christ said to confess
This poor widow gave more than all the rest
Not making tithes from a surplus of wealth
Giving her all absolutely forgoing her health
She made her offerings from her poverty to tell
How much she loves the LORD to avoid going to hell
Her livelihood was given the pains of giving in awe
A Widow Who Trusts the LORD with Her All
