An elderly lady once passed out in church, hitting her head on the pew as she went down. Someone called an ambulance, and she was placed on a stretcher. Just then, she regained consciousness and called for her daughter to come near. Some thought that she was summoning her strength to say her final words. The daughter leaned down, and her mother whispered, “My offering is in my purse.”
May we all become that devoted to giving to the Lord!
“But since you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in the love we have kindled in you—see that you also excel in this grace of giving.”—2 Corinthians 8:7.
