The Promise Effect: Monday, Week 7

“A poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, which are worth a penny. Then he called his disciples and said to them, ‘Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the treasury. For all of them have contributed out of their abundance; but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, all she had to live on.’” Mark 12:42-44



Reflection

Take a day of your life to see your world through Jesus’ eyes. Don’t just look for needs, but also for the examples of love and generosity around you. You might want to take notes as you go through the day, and you might need occasional reminders, in case you slip back into your normal way of seeing. It might help to gather some other people that night or the next day, just to review your “sightings.”



Prayer
Thank you for people who live your Gospel. Open my eyes so my life can be enriched and challenged by their witness. (The Promise Effect, p. 40, 41)

Today's youth are often characterized as selfish, or the "me" generation. Read about some amazing students who sacrifice their time and money to sponsor the tuition of Noah, a kindergartner at our CamdenForward School. http://urbanpromiseusa.org/haddonfield-teens-sponsor-school-tuition-camdenforward-school-student
