Old Testament Lesson: Deuteronomy 8:10-18 (Do not forget the Lord)
Gospel Lesson: Mark 12:41-44 (The widow’s offering)
It is easy to forget that all we have is a gift from God. We work, get paid, and buy the things we have. On the surface, it appears that we are responsible for our possessions. But God’s Word offers us another perspective – He blesses us with health, intelligence, and strength to work. All that we have comes from Him. Only when the Holy Spirit opens our eyes to the reality of the Gospel are we able to see life the way God sees it. All good things in life come from Jesus – and belong to Him.
