Last week, I wrote of our opportunity to watch General Conference, to hear President Monson and other leaders speak. One apostle spoke on tithing. His words touched me. He did not preach, but, rather, reminded us of the blessings that come when we pay our tithes and offerings.
He recounted the scripture story of the widow's mite. If you'll recall, the Savior spoke of the rich men who gave of their abundance. Then a widow offered two mites, which were worth a farthing. A small amount to be sure, especially when compared to the offerings of the wealthy men, but the Savior prized those two mites.
I beleive that the Savior prizes anything we give when we give with a willing heart. He prizes our talents we share to bless the lives of others. He prizes our energy when we give honest work. He prizes our hearts when we love fully and unconditionally.
So, for today, I am grateful for the reminder of the widow's mite.
