“The Spiritual Power of Two Pennies” (Luke 21:1-4)
• Stewardship is judged based on what you have LEFT, not on what give. Important lessons about Jesus and ourselves…… • Jesus is watching every time you give and WHAT you GIVE. > Jesus did not FOCUS ON the rich, but zeroed in on the poor woman. • Jesus knows your TOUGH circumstances. > Jesus regards it as FIT and proper to give despite poverty. > Jesus doesn’t excuse a person’s biblical responsibility to HONOR God. • Jesus understands the VALUE of a sacrifice. > Sacrifice is motivated by LOVE. > A sacrifice forces you to depend TOTALLY on God. > A sacrifice surrenders ALL.
Receiving spiritual power……..
• By giving from a HEART of love and thanksgiving for all God has done for you. • By giving CHEERFULLY. • By giving LIBERALLY. • By giving SACRIFICIALLY.
