PrayFit Devotional: Clive Said That--August 30, 2012--Read: Mark 12
“Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, “I tell you the truth, this poor widow has given more to the treasury than all the others.” –Mark 12:43
Like many of us, Clive Staples didn’t really start living until he gave his heart to Jesus. Nine days after he and a writing buddy went for a long walk, Clive — a known agnostic — accepted God’s grace and used the rest of his life as an offering to the Lord. Two thousand years earlier, Jesus watched a poor widow offer her life’s savings — two copper coins (worth about half a penny) — into the church plate.
Two people that changed our world with one, single offering. But it was their offering of all.
Who’s world would change if you asked God to help you give your all to your health? Maybe Your spouse? Your Kids? Maybe a friend who needs you to be all God intended you to be. Well, whoever comes to mind, just remember, it’s not about perfection, but diligence. After all, “We don’t have souls, we are souls. We have bodies.” Clive Staples said that. But you know him better as C.S Lewis. –Jimmy Peña
