She, out of her want, put in all the means of living she had.—Luke 21:4.

 

Like the needy widow, many of our modern-day fellow believers trust that if they seek first the Kingdom, Jehovah will make sure that they have what they need. (Matt. 6:33) Consider a brother named Malcolm. Over the decades that he and his wife served Jehovah, they experienced ups and downs. “Life is unpredictable at times, uncertain, and even hard to deal with,” he said. “But Jehovah blesses those who lean on him.” Malcolm’s advice? “Pray to be as productive and as active in Jehovah’s service as you can be. Focus on what you can do, not on what you cannot do.” As this system of things goes “from bad to worse,” we can expect to face increasingly greater difficulties. (2 Tim. 3:1, 13) So it is more important than ever that we do not allow ourselves to be paralyzed by such challenges. Rather, we need to cultivate strong trust in Jehovah while taking whatever appropriate action we can. w17.01 1:17-19

We have to remember that it is not the amount that we contribute that reflects our gratitude to Jehovah, but it is the spirit in which we give. Very encouraging to know that whatever our circumstances, we can find favor in the eyes of our appreciative God and Jesus. 

That’s also why even those of us who “ come late in the day, from the market place to work in the vineyard” are paid the same wage. Due to Jehovah’s undeserved generosity & kindness, He recognizes the spirit in which we give of our time/ resources and rewards us all in equal measure. We should never compare each other’s contributions because only Jehovah sees the inner person and has the right to judge.
