I was talking to my nephew on the phone recently. He asked what I had been doing and I told him I was trying to raise money to buy pictures for my book, Sweeter Than Chocolate: Developing a Healthy Addiction to God’s Word. He volunteered to make chocolate pudding and take a picture of it for my book. It’s good to be loved. It’s good to have someone eager to help me achieve simple goals.
Jesus affirmed the widow who gave two copper coins to God because that was all she could afford. He praised the men who used the talents entrusted to them.
