Twenty-Five Cents at a Time by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 03/22/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Years ago a well-known preacher described a surrendered life this way:

“We think giving our all to the Lord is like taking a $1,000 bill and laying it on the table. ‘Here’s my life, Lord. I’m giving it all.’

“But the reality for most of us is that He sends us to the bank and has us cash the $1,000 for quarters. We go through life putting out twenty-five cents here and fifty cents there.”

Nancy: What does it mean to offer twenty-five cents at a time? Well, God may be asking you to sacrifice the next thirty minutes to call a mother-in-law who can be so negative, or to talk with your teenage kid, or to give up a normal night’s sleep to care for a sick child.

Maybe it seems like your day is so routine and nothing you do really matters. Don’t forget that each twenty-five-cent sacrifice is significant in God’s economy.
