S.O.A.P.

Yesterday my Life Journal entry was from
Mark 12:44:
"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."
These were the words Jesus spoke of the poor widow woman after she has placed all that she had in the offering. She gave out of her poverty, her whole livelihood. She did not put any value or trust on what she had.
I wonder how often I come to the Lord willing to give of my life out of abundance? Jesus compared her gift as greater than all those who gave before her in total. Jesus could see her heart.
When I come to the Lord in my poverty, my lack, my need, my insufficiency and insecurities, I have come offering everything I really am. It doesn't matter what it looks like to others. God sees my heart. I have given Him the whole of my life.
