Uncomfortable Generosity - Why give to the church?
This week we will look at the danger of holding back from God.

Read Mark 12:41-44 The Widow's Offering
"For they gave out of their abundance." (ESV) Isn't that a good thing?

Mark 12:41-44 English Standard Version (ESV)

41 And he sat down opposite the treasury and watched the people putting money into the offering box. Many rich people put in large sums. 42 And a poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, which make a penny. 43 And he called his disciples to him and said to them, “Truly, I say to you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the offering box. 44 For they all contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, all she had to live on.”
