The Widow’s Mite (Mark 12:41–44)

“God is the only one with an eternal supply of everything we need. It was a wise move on the widow’s part to entrust herself completely to God because by transferring what could not sustain her in the long term into the hands of Jehovah Jireh (the God who provides), her little became much. Her meager resources became consecrated when she connected them to God, and He could now take over the full responsibility of providing for her. God could now also greatly multiply what she had entrusted to Him because God responds to our faith with extravagant blessings in extraordinary ways. He blesses us back with far more than we can ever give to Him, and the most important lesson to draw from this woman’s example is this: rich or poor, those who love truly are generous givers!

At this point, we need to take a deep breath and remind ourselves that we don’t need to depend solely on our own willpower or determination to love or please God in any way. All our help comes from the Lord, and every new move of God begins with God. If we simplify our lives and yield ourselves to God, then we allow Him to accomplish His purpose in and through us. We can do nothing solely with our own strength; we need to align ourselves with God’s word. We learned earlier that we cannot genuinely learn to love others without first receiving love from God:

“My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth!” (Ps. 121:2, NLT).

“May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all” (2 Cor. 13:14, NLT).”
