NOTAM: (by James Mashburn) Mark 12:41-45. “Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts. But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a fraction of a penny. Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, “I tell you the truth, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put everything—all she had to live on. 

“Which pilot is more important or better skilled: a 777 Captain or a missionary Husky pilot? The 300 passengers on the 777 think their pilot is more important. The dying villager being transported by the missionary to a far away hospital might think otherwise. The point is not in the size of the aircraft, but the diligence, integrity and professionalism of the pilot. God is not as interested in the size of our bank account and our IQ’s certainly don’t impress him. He is interested in the willingness of our heart. Are you truly giving all up to God or holding things back?
