All or some

This is my journal entry from November 8 2013. I felt it will bless you today.

“You sat few feet away from the offering box and watched the rich guys gave large sums and a poor widow gave two coins. But when you commented, you praised the poor widow not because of what she gave, but the principle behind giving.

Now, I am like the rich guy. I only give you a bit of my strength, a bit of my resources, a fraction of my time, but what you want is all of my strength, all of my resources, all of my time!

Not to throw in a pocket of prayer here and there during the day, but to maintain a consciousness of the presence of the Holy Spirit always with me and to live in steady conversation with Him.

Not to supply some effort on God’s work but to give it all it takes until it is achieved; not to donate stipends to the course of the kingdom but to give all.

We received all, so we give all and it is when we give all that we continue to receive all.”

Hope you week has been great,

Toluwanimi
