Mark 12:41-44 – 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. 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.
Many of you have heard or read about this story of the widows’ mite. Often, people feel sorry for this woman, saying, ‘She gave all that she had. She probably needed it.’ No! What this woman needed was: a miracle. She realized that what she had wasn’t enough take care of her anyway. So she decided to put more trust in God’s system than this world’s system.
This widow got to the point where she was going to sink or swim. Either God’s way works or it doesn’t. You have to come to this same revelation for yourself. Either God is telling the truth about His Kingdom system or He’s not. Either Jesus died for you to be blessed or He didn’t. Either you have an inheritance or you don’t. Either the law of seedtime and harvest always works or it doesn’t.
It doesn’t matter if it is your last or not – will you sow it, if God tells you to sow it? Which system is your trust in the most — God’s or this world’s?
