Giving Her Everything  

2 comments

Today at church, I saw an old lady sitting in the front row.

She was the lady that we reached out during our home visitations.

In her old age, she was put out of her house by her own daughter, many days she would go hungry with hardly enough to eat. Many times when we visited her, she would be tearing telling us how much she loves her daughter and how she hopes that things will change.

Every week, some of Radion's sponsors would contribute a small pocket money for her to buy herself food and besides that she has no form of income at all.

What touched me the most today was when the offering bag was passed around. The ushers knew her financial situation and tried to avoid embarrassing her by skipping her. What happened next almost brought tears to my eyes.

I saw this old lady stretching out her hand towards the offering bag almost like saying "please, i want very much to give" with that the usher turned back and handed her the offering bag. She grabbed something very tightly over the bag and finally released it. Out from it came a small clinking sound of 2 coins.

For a lady who has nothing, giving the 2 coins meant the world to her. But instead of walking out of church with a pinch in her heart, she walked out with a radiant smile. It made me ponder how often we give out of our excess but not out of our hearts. For this old lady, she gave her everything.

What next?
