Others have all made offerings from their surplus wealth, but she, from her poverty, has offered her whole livelihood. Luke 21:4

Daniel 1:1-20 & Luke 21:1-4

My wife was reading excerpts from a book about Mother Theresa the other day and she said something that struck a cord with me as I listened. She read a part about how a wealthy people had asked how they could do more in giving and Mother Theresa told them the next time they buy a suit or a silk scarf they should buy one that is less expensive and give the rest to the poor. When you give until it hurts, then you are giving a part of your livelihood that doesn’t go unnoticed by God.

Since this is the week of Thanksgiving, I’m sending out a challenge to my friends and lovers of God’s Truth to look for something you can do this week that gives until it hurts. Maybe you’ll tell a homeless person you’ll bring them a plate of food on Thanksgiving or offer to buy them a hotel room for the night to give them a warm shower. Maybe you’ll share a pie with them you baked from scratch. Maybe you’ll travel around your home and look for people who are in need and give them some fresh clothes. When you love your love of Christ, giving until it hurts feels so good for you are doing it all for the Glory of God. Amen.

So we ask in prayer: Dear God, we pray today we can offer the livelihood of our lives’ to share Your Truth. We pray for Roberto Soriano and his needs to be blessed by You LORD. We pray for Prayer Points to give people hope for God’s Truth. We pray for LIFE FM and the DJ’s who bring their flare for Your Gospel to the radio waves of Miami. We pray for the children of the world and the people who teach them Your love. We pray LORD for the serenity to accept the things we cannot change, courage to change the things we can, and wisdom to know the difference. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

God Bless His Truth for America,

Romans 8:28

Spirit led God inspired Christ fed

A Widow Who Trusts the LORD with Her All- Luke 21:1-4

Jesus watched the wealthy add their tithe

The plate was ringing with their sinful little lies

As the poor widow added all she learned to hide

Giving her livelihood before God’s tearful eyes

‘I tell you truly’ Christ said to confess

This poor widow gave more than all the rest

Not making tithes from a surplus of wealth

Giving her all absolutely forgoing her health

She made her offerings from her poverty to tell

How much she loves the LORD to avoid going to hell

Her livelihood was given the pains of giving in awe

A Widow Who Trusts the LORD with Her All

About Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins

My name is Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins. I first recognize Christ as my Savior in all things. I am married to my best friend and Soul-Mate in Christ, Antonia Cruz-Wiggins. I am a University of Florida graduate of Public Relations, a US Navy Veteran and a Montessori Elementary School Teacher. I love life and God's help of living it! I follow the Light of Christ in everything I do! I love writing poetry about the Lord and I create a new poem from each Scripture I discern in my daily mediations. You can almost follow the poem by looking at the readings for each day. I started sharing this small yet personal scripture study four years ago when one day I was reading the bible and the Holy Spirit moved me to share the verse with a group of about 40 Christian Men in my Emmaus Ministry who get together weekly to celebrate the Lord and talk about His Truth. Since then the number of people I share my study with has grown to over 650. I enjoy an open loving dialog about anything I write and I have strived to write what I know the Lord wants me to share steering clear of offending anyone’s spiritual beliefs because I share my work with people I meet in public when I strike up a conversation about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It took almost 2 years to begin writing what the Holy Spirit leads me to say. I believe that all Christians must unite as One Body of Christ’s Love to accomplish the joy of living with love, honor and respect. I reach out to Humanity to share His Salvation be it Baptist, Catholic, Protestant, Episcopal or any other religion or belief. I seek to mirror His Compassion, His Simpleness, His Charity and His Love. While I am Catholic, I believe we must all unite in the Lord to become One Body in Christ to bring our children back to The Church. I am humbled to share my study with you. Please feel free to comment any time. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is my Joy because I am a Disciple of His Truth. I am honored to share my Bible study with anyone you may recommend. As always, I remain, Yours in Christ, Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins
