Proverbs 22:9 He that hath a bountiful eye shall be blessed; for he giveth of his bread to the poor
Mark 12:41 And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury: and many that were rich cast in much.42 And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing.43 And He called unto Him His Disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury:44 For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, even all her living.
I have a sweet friend who thought I could use some specific things for when I host potluck meals at the house. Although she is not a woman of great means, she considered me and used her limited resources to help meet a need. From what I understand, and of no surprise to me, that is typical for her.
As I mentioned over Christmas, my mom would send out baked goods to family and friends as gifts. She volunteered many places over the years and helped me with my children whenever I needed . My precious mother used what she had, investing time and talents to bless others.
Thanks, Almighty God
