Young Women Values - Good Works

Good Works

“Jesus…beheld how the people cast money into the treasury: and many that were rich cast in much. And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites… And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, that this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury: For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had…” – Mark 12:41-44

It can be easy to do good things when everything in our lives is going well. The true test is what we do when we are struggling ourselves. Do we choose to focus inwardly, telling ourselves we will do good when things get better. Or, do we choose to follow the widow's example and perform Good Works even when life is difficult? It is only as we forget ourselves in doing good that we will understand Jesus promise, ® He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.® - Matthew 10:39
