Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

When we promise to follow Christ, what is our level of commitment?  How much of ourselves do we give?

"Truly I tell you this poor widow has put more into the treasury more than all the others.  They all gave out of their wealth, but she, out of her poverty, put in everything--she she had to live on."
                                                      - Mark 12:43,44
The story of the Widow's Mite--less than a penny she put into the offering, when others put in tens of thousands.  Please don't' make the mistake of thinking this is merely about money.  Much more than that.  This is about "everything."
When we ponder what is involved in following Jesus, in being a Christian, when is the last time we thought it meant "everything?"  Yet Jesus commends this widow as an illustration for us all.
