cannot out give God

In today's first reading I was struck by the woman's response:1 Kgs 17:10-16

"...a widow was gathering sticks there; he called out to her, 'Please bring me a small cupful of water to drink.' She left to get it"

"...But first make me a little cake and bring it to me. She left and did as Elijah had said. "

When the Lord asks, do I drop whatever I am doing and respond?

Do I respond, or do I weigh the request against my priorities?

Like the woman in today's Gospel, Mk 12:38-44, Have I "contributed all" I have, or have I contributed from my "surplus"?

Do I believe Everything is a gift from God, therefore Everything is His?

It is my intent that God looks to.

I cannot out give God. Can I give ALL He asks, WHEN He asks?
