What about giving money? ?

Money. Most of us don’t like to talk about it, especially when we know that someone else needs or wants it. In fact, sometimes it seems like everyone has their hand out wanting a donation for some “worthy cause.”

The truth is that money is nothing more than a tool to be used to accomplish things. Hoarding it does no good and wasting it does no good. However, investing money in the right places does lots of good.

Some things to ponder:

1. What is money to you (i.e., success, wealth, status, etc.)? ?

2. How can you overcome your reluctance to invest in the right people or causes?



Will you share what you have? ?

Most people are taught about the need to share at an early age. However, there are times when sharing is just not possible, or at least very difficult. Sometimes it is simply because we don’t want to share! .

The widow and her son had good reason not to share – they only had enough food for one last meal. However, read the rest of the story and see how God blessed their generosity (vv 13-16). .

Some things to ponder:

1. What makes it difficult or impossible for you to share?

2. Will you ask God to help you next time the opportunity to help arises?
