GENUINENESS PDF Print

"And He called His disciples to Him and said to them, ‘Truly, I say to you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the offering box.  For they all contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, all she had to live on.'"

Mark 12:43-44 ESV

The truly amazing thing that is exposed here is our Lord's perception.  Not that Jesus in His humanity could not know.  We've already seen countless times within these gospel records of Jesus perceiving the hearts and minds of those He's dealing with. 

But this seems different?  This is like the woman at the well that John tells us of.  There, Jesus knew how many husbands the woman had-here Jesus knows this woman's complete financial situation.  She does not engage Him, nor does He converse with her but He knows!

Certainly Jesus has now ascended and is clothed in the full expression of His divinity.  So, your heart and mine is laid bear before His knowing gaze.  All that can be known regarding your motives and mine, your actions and mine, are His to judge.

May we live and move fully aware of this fact.  Seeking to live within a genuineness that is propelled by our trust and our faith!

– Dale
