Giving All That You Have

by shani4jc

The radio station I listen to is has been having share-a-thon for the past several days in order to raise the funds to continue operating that station.  They are a listener supported station with very little funds supplied by advertisements.  As I was driving home tonight, an eight year old little girl called into the station to make a monthly donation.  She said that she earned ten dollars per month by doing the dishes and reading to her brother and that she wanted to donate all ten dollars to the radio station because she wanted to help people.  I confess that I almost burst into tears at the sheer generosity and unselfishness of the young girl.  I couldn't help but think of the story in the Bible about the poor widow who put everything she had into the offering.  God honored the widow in the Bible and I have absolutely no doubt that He is going to honor the young girl's gift in ways that cannot even be imagined.  She has willingly given all that she has and God will bless her beyond measure for that gift.

"Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap.  For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you." Luke 6:38
