The Widow's Offering (Luke 20:45-21:9)
Sunday with your kids
Lesson summary: The Lord looks into the heart of our offering.
In our bible story we learned:
1. Beware of the scribes.
2. Be like the widow.
3. Even the temple will be destroyed.
Where is the Gospel?
How does today's Bible story fit into God's greater plan of redemption?
Each of us has a choice to make. Will we be like the widow who entrusted her life to God or like the rich who trusted in their riches? Are we willing to entrust everything we have to God, or is our faith limited to that which does not cost us? Jesus knows what is in our hearts. He can see by our actions who or what we really worship. Jesus died on the cross to set us free from the love of money and replace it with love for him. When our hearts are changed by his grace, it is easy to give back to him because we trust him with our lives.

Pray about it! Ask God to help you confess and not hide your sin, even when it makes you look bad to others.
