—Hal M. Helms, Echoes of Eternity
Heavenly Father, the widow gave not out of her abundance but out of the totality of all she had. It is easy for me to give praise and thanks and glory to you when I am feeling strong and happy. But what of when I have little or nothing—am depressed or disappointed? Lord Jesus, help me to see that these are the times when giving you praise and affirming your goodness count the most. Amen.
