Luke 21:1-4 ” As He looked up, Jesus saw the rich putting their gifts into the Temple Treasury. He also saw a poor widow putting in two very small copper coins. ‘I tell you the truth,’ He said, ‘This poor widow has put in more than all the others. All these people gave their gifts out of their wealth; but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on.’ “

You may think you’re stingy with your money…but I know something else of yours that you’re even more tight-fisted with…it’s your time.  We all act like our time is more precious than others.  And when asked to volunteer, our stock answer usually is, “Sorry, but I just don’t have the time for that.”  I can dare say for the most part we are  more selfish with our time than with our money.  But in II Corinthians 8:12 it talks about giving generously and having the desire and willingness to give what you have, not what you don’t have.  We’ve all been given the same amount of hours in the day…but it’s what we do with them that will make a Kingdom difference in this hurting world.
