What God sees!

If someone gave a gift of 1000 euro to a charity, and someone else gave 50c, which one would have been the most generous? According to Jesus' teachings it could have been the one who gave the 50c! It is not riches that Jesus takes note of!

"As He looked up, Jesus saw the rich putting their gifts into the temple treasury. He also saw a poor widow put in two very small copper coins. 'I tell you the truth,' He said, 'this poor widow has put in more than all the others.'" 1*.

No doubt many had noticed the great amounts of money the rich were putting into the treasury. 2*. Perhaps some people were wishing they could afford to give such gifts to God to gain favour with Him. How surprised everyone must have been to discover that the generous gifts of the rich did NOT earn them favour with God!

It is important to always remember that "the LORD does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart." 3*.

God doesn't just look at what you and I do or say, He looks right into our thoughts and hearts. He knows well whenever a person just goes to Church to be seen by others. He knows whenever someone says a prayer to Him but is not truly believing in Him because the same person is going off to say many prayers to someone else.

God will not allow His glory to be shared with other so-called gods and goddesses. 4*. God is our only Creator and only Saviour 5*. so He is right to claim to be a jealous God. 6*. To worship or pray to anyone or anything else would be to try to rob God of His rightful place as the only true God. 7*.

So you see why many people who are trying to impress God with their gifts and their actions are not succeeding! 8*. God looks on the heart, and He expect us to love Him with all our hearts. 9*.

As Jesus watched the gifts being put into the treasury He said, "All these people gave their gifts out of their wealth; but the poor widow out of her poverty put in all she had to live on." 1*.

Are you concerned about what God sees as He looks into your acts of worship? Does He see you as one who truly loves the Lord with all your heart?

Have you trusted in Him alone to forgive and save you from sin? He truly deserves your love and trust because He sent His Son to take the punishment for your sins and to become your Saviour. Don't be guilty of arousing His jealousy by seeking forgiveness and salvation through someone else! Put your whole trust in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour today, and live the rest of your life in love and obedience to Him. 10*.

Read about Jesus commending the poor widow's response to God in Luke's Gospel chapter 21, verses 1-4.
