Scripture: Mark 12:38-44
How American use spend their time and money.
We worship God most when we sacrificially love Him and love others more than ourselves.
The Crown and the Cross – Jesus in the Gospel of Mark
Beware the Hypocrites
Warnings against their self-righteousness and lack of real love for God and people.
Giving Some or All
Hypocrites gave just some (a small portion) of their large wealth. The poor widow gave all that she had even though it was a small amount.
God wants our hearts and our love for Him and people more than our offerings.
Giving Your All
• Our hearts and motives make all the difference when we give
• God can do great things with tiny offerings
• Everything will be revealed at the judgment seat of Christ
• God values the giver not the gift
• We worship God properly when we sacrificially love Him and love others more than ourselves.
