“And He sat down opposite the treasury, and began observing how the people were putting money into the treasury…” (Mark 12:41).

One area you may not like Jesus is when it comes to giving. By our giving, he makes judgments about our lives, priorities, and whether or not we are arranging our lives to honor him. It’s a haunting reality that the true love of our life, and the object of our affection, is proved out not by the confession of our lips but the ledger of our checkbook and the receipts from our credit cards.
