Give from your abundance?

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for healing my knees instantly 15 years ago. Thank you for keeping them healed all these many years. Thank you for letting this miracle be my foundation of thankfulness, where I try to thank you for healing my knees any time that I am going up or down stairs. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for Lindsey:

And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing.  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: 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. (Mark 12:42-44)

Lord, here I am again. I’m here as usual on behalf of your daughter Lindsey. Yes, Lindsey, I am here and am praying for you. And today’s scripture is a hard one. We know that God delights in blessing each of us as we follow him and his ways. We know that he wants us to prosper. But at the same time, here we see Jesus taking note of someone who was giving all that she had and Jesus was honoring her before those he was speaking to. I don’t think giving everything is what Jesus is asking of us, or of you.  But I think he is asking us to pay attention and to make sure that giving is a normal part of our daily lives. And so, Lindsey, I pray that you would continue looking for ways that you can bless those around you by giving of yourself, your time and even your resources. I pray that God would open opportunities for you and that he would clearly point them out to you. I pray that God would continue to be generous to you as you are generous to those around you. And we will give the glory to God. All the glory is his. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

GNT:
then a poor widow came along and dropped in two little copper coins, worth about a penny. He called his disciples together and said to them, “I tell you that this poor widow put more in the offering box than all the others. For the others put in what they had to spare of their riches; but she, poor as she is, put in all she had—she gave all she had to live on.”

HCSB:
And a poor widow came and dropped in two tiny coins worth very little. Summoning His disciples, He said to them, “I assure you: This poor widow has put in more than all those giving to the temple treasury. For they all gave out of their surplus,but she out of her poverty has put in everything she possessed—all she had to live on.”

KJV translation note

The King James Version is a beautiful translation of the original Hebrew and Greek, however I sometimes find Old English hard to understand fully. 1 or 2 other translations can help clarify what it is saying so I can understand it. More Info CLICK: References
