I don’t think I’ve ever heard a sermon about the widow’s mite that wasn’t about the widow and her gift. Jesus was definitely making a point about her generous giving. She had almost nothing and still wanted to give some of what she had to the Lord. That probably doesn’t apply to most of the people reading these words. We will probably wonder what we will eat today rather than if we will be able to eat today. Most of us are abundantly blessed with that security. The majority of the people, even in the first century, “contributed out of their abundance.” I rarely ask, but today I need to: Will you consider doing the same?

Many of you have chosen to use North Texas Giving Day as an opportunity to support our ministries, and all of us at Denison Forum have been blessed by your generosity. Today will offer you that opportunity this year.

JanetDenison.com is my website and reaches thousands of people each week. My goal is to offer biblical teaching to all who visit the site through a weekly blog post, in-depth Bible studies, and other resources. Your donations make it possible for us to freely offer this ministry to everyone.

I’ve received letters of gratitude from foreign missionaries who translate the materials for their congregations. My Bible studies and blog posts have been used by prison ministries, neighborhood Bible studies, and small congregations of believers who are able to download the free content and save their budget dollars for other needs.

Many of you have already told me that you plan to give today, and I’ve been able to say, “Thank you” face-to-face. For others who plan to give, please know that I would wish for that same opportunity with you. If you have never made a donation to Denison Forum, would you consider giving now?

I can honestly say that we have a well-staffed, hard-working ministry, and we will do our best to honor each donation with our choices and priorities. We are an Internet ministry and are able to use even “the widow’s mite” to impact thousands. I honestly believe the Internet is a powerful mission field, and every day people come to faith in God, return to God, and grow in their faith because of the materials made available to them by websites like ours.

It is easy to give, and we are grateful for every dollar. Thank you, and may your gift be a blessing to you as it will be to others.
