How To Serve And Give Back
What did Jesus love about the widow’s giving? He loved the widow’s passionate response to the priceless spiritual gifts she had received. Her loving response to the Lord reflected the completion of the circle of love within her, begun by God. The widow’s attitude stood out from the wealthy; she gave all she had. They gave “out of their wealth.”
Pray that the inspiration we gain from these words helps create in us a heart that fully honors God with our own gifts.
Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, “Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything—all she had to live on.” -Mark 12:43-44
We can tithe with our funds to help serve our church, but more importantly we can also tithe with our time. A great way to serve your church is to offer your skills, your talents, your gifts or just your helping hands. If you are unsure of ways to volunteer or help, the service board "Fan The Flames" in the hallway always has ideas and suggestions for service within the church as well as the community around us. If the Holy Spirit burdens your hearts as well with ideas or projects to serve and you would like to include others, use this service board to reach members of the congregation.
