The True Measure Of Generosity

By Princess Arira

Your generosity is not measured by how much you give but by how much you have left after you give. This is God’s way to measure generosity, the poor widow that gave a mite gave all she had., by this she gave more than others. There’s actually no currency on earth that is as worthless as the “widow’s mite” today. That is to show how broke that woman was yet, Jesus said she gave more. She might not have given more physically, but she gave her best., Jesus looked at how much she had left after she dropped it. After she gave, she didn’t have anything left.

Jesus does not measure your generosity by what you give but by how much you have left after you give. In the early church, people sold their lands and dropped it at the Apostle’s feet. Paul said about the house of Stephanas in 1Cor 16:15, I beseech you brethren, ( ye know the house of Stephan that it is the first fruit of achaia and they that have admitted themselves to the ministry of the saints) they admitted themselves to giving. 
Paul spoke of Philemon that the bowels of the believers were refreshed by him. Philemon  1:7, For we have great joy and consolation in thy love because the bowels of saints are with thee, brother.
God wants you to support the gospel with your money. In Luke 8, we saw the examples of women who gave to support the ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ. Luke 8:2,  And certain women which have been healed of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary called Magdalene out of whom went seven devils.
Luke 8:3, and Joanna the wife of chuza Herod’s Steward, and Susanna, and many others, which ministered unto him of their substance.
There’s nothing wrong in having abundance but you must understand the purpose for it. So, the question today is what are you doing with what you have?
Be a true giver today.
Reading the bible throughout in a year., Exo 39, 40, Mark 9:2-32, Psm 26:1-12.
