REVELATION 14:1-3, 4-5
Next in my vision I saw Mount Zion, and standing on it the Lamb who
had with him a hundred and forty-four thousand people, all with his
name and his Father's name written on their foreheads. I heard a sound
coming out of heaven like the sound of the ocean or the roar of
thunder; it was like the sound of harpists playing their harps. There
before the throne they were singing a new hymn in the presence of the
four living creatures and the elders, a hymn that could be learnt only
by the hundred and forty-four thousand who had been redeemed from the
world. These are the sons who have kept their virginity and not been
defiled with women; they follow the Lamb wherever he goes; they, out
of all people, have been redeemed to be the first-fruits for God and
for the Lamb. No lie was found in their mouths and no fault can be
found in them.

LUKE 21:1-4
Looking up, he saw rich people putting their offerings into the
treasury; and he noticed a poverty-stricken widow putting in two small
coins, and he said, 'I tell you truly, this poor widow has put in more
than any of them; for these have all put in money they could spare,
but she in her poverty has put in all she had to live on.'

What was so significant with this poor widow was not in the quantity
but in the quality of the money she put in. The offering of the widow
was her life! She put in more than any of them because she put in her
life in the offering. She put her complete life into the hands of God.
And for this she would surely receive a hundredfold from the Lord. She
was found more favorable than all the rich people who put in their
excesses, even if the amount was a hundred times more than what the
poor widow put in.

And this is the point. Many of us put our loose change for the Lord,
in terms of money, in terms of time, in terms of affection. We are not
sure that the Lord is real, that Heaven exists, we are afraid that we
might get "shortchanged" by the Lord and thus suffer the consequences.
As a result, we are not able to "fly" to meet Christ with an
experience of faith, but lie miserably with our earthly goods. Truly,
the one who is greedy and has no trust in the Lord is the one indeed
who is poor! Let us learn to be rich with generosity and trust in the
