LUKE 21

Bill Gates and his wife have already given away 28 billion dollars of their fortune to charitable work worldwide; they intend to give away at least 95 percent of all their money eventually.  http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/bill-gates/9812672/Bill-Gates-interview-I-have-no-use-for-money.-This-is-Gods-work.html

Warren Buffett, currently the richest man in the world, has pledged to give away at least 99 percent of his entire fortune – mostly via the Bill Gates Foundation – and has also persuaded 128 other billionaires to give away at least half their fortunes to charity too.

A poor elderly widow quietly placed two small copper coins (the smallest denomination possible) into the offering box of the Temple.  Noticing her, Jesus commented that she had put in more than anyone else.  How? Well, in God’s eyes, it is not how much you give, but how little you leave yourself with afterwards, that really defines generosity.   Well done Bill Gates and Warren Buffett!   Well done poor and anonymous lady!  Well done anyone who gives generously to the work of Jesus and the relief of the poor!  “You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion” – says the scripture.
