Too Little?

A reading for Friday, August 21, 2015: Mark 12:35-44.

Perhaps one of our problems is that we are asked for too little...

We ask you to volunteer. Can you give us a little of your time? We need you to help us with this project or that program.

We ask for a little of your money. We have a budget that needs to be funded. Can you give us some of your money?

We ask for a little of your allegiance. Can you join our church or our small group? The more people we have, then the more legitimacy.

What if instead of asking for a little of your time, your money, and your allegiance we asked for your life. Everything! All of it! The whole enchilada!

It seems from our lesson today that's what the widow gave and Jesus said, "For all of them have contributed out of their abundance; but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, all she had to live on." Hmmmm.
