Tossing in my last dollar

Luke 21

Would I throw in my last dollar? The offering plate is coming around, I have a dollar and nothing else. Do I hang onto to it using it as my security or do I toss it and believe God Will provide?

“1 As he looked up, Jesus saw the rich putting their gifts into the temple treasury. 2 He also saw a poor widow put in two very small copper coins. 3 “I tell you the truth,” he said, “this poor widow has put in more than all the others. 4 All these people gave their gifts out of their wealth; but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on.”‘

I don’t know the answer. I don’t really want to be asked the question. Life is changing Im finding I don’t like change. The reason I don’t like change is that I have been trusting in the status quo. I trust in the stability of my surroundings and if they change I become poultry, chicken little. Part of me is thinking “I don’t deserve what I have and God just figured it out”.

Forgive my poor foundations Jesus. Rebuild me, gently.

Another part of me is saying I serve the God who said “let there be light,” and at his word light was created. How can I fear?

There are bigger changes coming and no one knows how soon or how long. The blood moon last night some say is a sign of judgement. Others think it’s was just pretty.

’25 “There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. 26 Men will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. 27 At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”‘

The good news is Jesus is coming back. Will we be ready? Will we be watching and waiting? Will we have received his gift of salvation?

I am a man. I am an older man. I am a husband and a dad and a grandpa. I am a disciple of Jesus. Because I am a disciple of Jesus much of what I write is about him, and I usually end what I write with a question, do you the reader know that Jesus loves you? He does. He loves us all but he loves you specifically. He loves me specifically. What will you do with that information today?
