11.21.21 Christian Formation - Spiritual Practices

November 24, 2021

Psalm 1:1-6; 1 Timothy 4:6-16; Mark 12:38–44.

An old story tells of a stranger walking in the streets of a noisy city. He listens, stops, and finds a cricket on the street that no one has noticed. He drops some coins on the pavement, and everyone hears and stops. In the Gospel today, no one but Jesus noticed the copper coins amid the large sums placed in the offering box. But He did not hear coins; He heard the sound of a great faith. This woman gave her all, trusting in the Lord alone. We live in times of great abundance. Great abundance does not produce generosity, but faith does. From the generous God who has given us all things in Christ, we learn to live as a generous people. The grace of God is sufficient for all things we need today and for our eternal salvation.
