It struck me as funny tonight when I realized that the famous widow of the Gospels that gave her last mite into the temple treasury was not giving her “first fruits.” If she had done what we constantly push in the church, wouldn’t she have given first to the Temple treasury, and then kept the rest for herself? Maybe she would have been able to give a little more if she had thought about it a little more ahead of time. I don’t know–just seemed funny in a way. We always talk “First fruits giving,” and yet here is this widow who gave her last penny. And yet, we use her as the paragon of virtue for stewardship. Chuckle, chuckle.
