When Jesus saw the rich put their alms into the Poor Box and then saw a poor woman put in two small copper coins, He said, “I tell you the truth, this poor widow has put in more than all of them. For they [the rich] offered their gifts out of their wealth. But she, out of her poverty, put in everything she had to live on”. (Luke 21:3-4)
When we ask Jesus the King, “How much will it cost for a place in Heaven?” The King may well answer, “Sorry, you have too much money!” (Amy 11yrs)
Lord Jesus, thank you for your many wonderful gifts but help me to share them wisely, please! Amen.
Prayer: Day-by-Day (St Richard of Chichester)
Praise be to Thee, O Lord Jesus Christ
For all the benefits you have given us,
for all the pains and insults which you have borne for us.
O most merciful Redeemer, Friend and Brother,
May, we see you more clearly,
Love you more dearly,
and follow You more nearly.
Day by day. Amen
