AN EMPTY POCKET FULL OF GOOD

“For those others have all made out of their surplus put into the offering; but she out of her poverty put in all that she had to live on.” – Luke 21:4

A few years ago while stuck in traffic, I saw a street child selling candy from a wooden box that she offered to people who passed her by on the sidewalk. When a man paid her money for gum, the child counted the coins in her hand, placed them in her pocket and began packing up her things to go home.
Suddenly, a small boy walked up to her, tugged on her sleeve and put both palms out with a pleading look on his face. I was amazed to see the older child put her hand back inside her pocket with little hesitation and watched as she selflessly gave what she had just earned to the little boy. As he skipped away in joy, she slowly picked up her wooden box and once again began calling out for people to buy her candy.
That child taught me that true giving meant more than just random acts of kindness. Generosity should be an inner habit, one we must form by constantly sharing our blessings with a full heart and with the deepest faith that God will continue to provide. Eleanore Lee (elyo.lee@gmail.com)

REFLECTION:
When you give wholeheartedly, God rewards you with the smiles of those who have benefited from your goodness.

Lord, constantly remind me that You brought me into this world with Your love as my sole possession. Any blessing in excess of that belongs not just to me but all of Your children.
