Daily Devotional

The Size of the Heart

It was the fact that the poor widow gave it all. The wealthy were accustomed to putting large sums in the offering, but they had not given everything. The act of complete self-denial warms the heart of God because it means that His own character is being reflected in the heart of a human being. Jesus Himself, after all, gave everything.

He gave up the glories of heaven for a life in a world wracked with pain and suffering. He stepped away from the adoration of angels to be mocked and rejected by people whose lives depended on His creative power. He even gave up His own life--absolultely everything He had--to save sinners.

It is not the number of digits on the check that puts a smile on the face of God, it is the size of the heart that gives it.
