Jesus talks about a woman who gave generously even though she had very little. (Mark 12:41-44) Through the story of the widow’s mite, they will hear how they can share (love) even when they have very little.
This week we find the Israelites at the foot of Mount Sinai. (Exodus 32:1-35) Instead of obeying God and waiting for Moses to come down off the mountain, the entire nation of Israel grew impatient. They built a golden calf and began to worship it instead of worshiping God. Their lack of patience had some severe consequences. Bottom Line: When you think you can’t wait, think about what’s true. It’s easier to wait when you remember all the times God has helped you before.
