Every time you see a coin this week, thank God for all of the good things he has given you. Ask him how you can give something back to him.
How does it make you feel when someone gives you a present?
How does it feel when you give someone else a present?
Luke 21:1 - 4 tells us about different people who gave money to the temple treasury to be used for God's work. Some people gave lots of money, but one lady gave just two copper coins. Jesus said that the lady gave more than all the other people because she gave all she had.
He said, “This poor widow gave only two small coins. But the truth is, she gave more than all those rich people. They have plenty, and they gave only what they did not need. This woman is very poor, but she gave all she had to live on.”
What do you have that you could give away to help other people? Could you use what you are good at to help God e.g. singing, dancing, sport, reading, etc.? Maybe, like the lady in the story, you would like to save your pennies to give to God. What could you do this week to give something back to God?
Dear God, thank you for all of the wonderful things you have given me. Please help me to give generously to others too. Amen
