Nothing We Do For God Is Insignificant

Have you ever thought that what you have to offer to God doesn't amount to much? Have you ever thought why would God even bother with you? Have you ever thought you have few, if any, talents or abilities God can use? 

Consider the poor widow and what little she had to give.

Mark 12:41-13:1 (CSB)
41 Sitting across from the temple treasury, he watched how the crowd dropped money into the treasury. Many rich people were putting in large sums. 42 Then a poor widow came and dropped in two tiny coins worth very little. 43 Summoning his disciples, he said to them,“Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. 44 For they all gave out of their surplus, but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had ​— ​all she had to live on.”

I remember a chorus we used to sing in church titled "Little Is Much When God Is In It". How true I have found this to me in my service to God. I grew up poor. I didn't have much to give and never thought what I had would matter much to God in the large scheme of things. I still have few talents or abilities but what I have I want to give to Him. 

There are so many areas we can give to God. It's not always all about money. Many are prayer warriors and they can give to God this way. Many have time they can give to God in doing things God has called them to do. Many are Aarons who can stand with others God is using. Some may be like Barnabas and be encouragers. There are some who have the financial means to help and that is much appreciated and needed. 

I believe everyone can give something to God - little or much. Let it come from the heart. Do what you can for the cause of Christ. Do keep in mind nothing we do for God is insignificant.

Until next time...enjoy the journey!
