When God Gets All Of Me

Chuck Sheridan Avatar

Jesus sat in the Temple one day with his disciples watching the people placing their Offerings into the offering box.   He observed that many dropped in large amounts and that a poor widow came by and gave all that she had to live on. 

“For they all contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, all she had to live on.”  Mark 12:44

Some have used this to pressure people to give more, which is not the point at all.  It is not how much you give, but the heart attitude from which you give from.  This widow women definitely had a huge heart for God, so much so, that she trusted Him to provide for her needs as she gave all she had. 

When God gets all of me my trust level goes way up.  We  don’t give or do things out of what we see, but out of what we believe about God.  If God is able to supply all our needs, and he is able, then we serve Him wholeheartedly holding nothing back. 

The main point is that God wants all of me!  He wants my heart, my mind, my hurts, my possessions, my family and he wants my sin.  Jesus came to redeem the whole of our being, not part.   

Have you given God all of you or are you holding back?
