"All these people gave their gifts out of their wealth; but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on" (Luke 21:4).
The rich gave out of what they had. It didn't really cost anything. They didn't have to assess it, and they didn't really miss it. This woman gave out of her poverty- out of her deficiency, her failure, her suffering, her lack and her want. She gave out of the essentials of her existence and well being. She gave her all. She was all in. She held nothing back. Nothing else mattered than living in total surrender, complete trust and uncompromising obedience.
Nothing valuable will ever mean more to you than what you're willing to pay. Salvation is a "free gift" from God the Father through Jesus Christ. However, how we receive that and live the fruit of that gift determines the effectiveness that gift will have in our lives. Giving out of our plenty is doing what we can, still being in control, not really feeling the effects of that cost. Giving out of our poverty, our deficiency, our lack, is to give out of our desperation. It's to say, "I'm giving it all to You, because I need all from You. I am nothing without you!"
This is how God has called you to live your life. You can't try to analyze- just accept! You can't over think- only trust! Living for Jesus will cost you everything. If you don't give everything you haven't really given anything. Choose to be ALL- IN! This is for keeps!
