Spiritual Warfare: 'More Than Any Other'

God's Power for Our Battles — Friday, April 22, 2022

A poor widow dropped in two small coins, worth less than a cent. He called his disciples and said to them, "I can guarantee this truth: This poor widow has given more than all the others. All of them have given what they could spare. But she, in her poverty, has given everything she had to live on."
— Mark 12:42-44 GWT

Today's Prayer

Lord, sometimes I struggle with my giving. I confess that I haven't always been a cheerful giver; I've often given what was left over, and grudgingly at that. Forgive me. Thank You for the example this poor woman offers. She demonstrated faith that trusted in Your provision-even when facing poverty and starvation. Yet You used her as an example that we are still talking about. Help me to be a better example from now on by committing a tithe to You before I focus on myself. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
