(Poem 488 Lyrics:
Why worry about holding on to it? and let the Prophet eat first;
If God is in charge of your support, why should your source be withered?
Every day there is a new need, and every day there must be a new supply;
Since you were created by him, wouldn't he design it for you?
Still love, still give, still you have a grip left;
All love, all giving, is to be multiplied by God.
Believe! The time will not be delayed, although it is not fast, it is not slow;
Believe! The bottle never runs dry, never empty, nor full.
Even if the lily is short of clothes, even if the bird has no food to peck,
But the widow's small altar must still have a hold.
Why do you have to predict tomorrow's situation, when enough is enough, you can coke;
Why bother worrying about tomorrow, don't you still have it!
Love is life, keep it for the anti, the more you sow, the more you reap;
As if you've run out of everything, behold! You still have a grip!)
(There is an example in the Bible on financial donations, which is the widow’s two small coins. At that time, the Lord praised her, because she put her life on the table. The rich man also donated. It's hard to support, but that widow, all he has is the two small coins, she gave them to the Lord, and if she gave it, it was gone, so what would she do with her livelihood? She didn't calculate it there. This is what I use in my life, so I can't give it. She gave everything she had, so the Lord praised her.)
(There is also an example in the Old Testament, Elijah met a widow and asked her to make him some bread to give him, but the widow had only a little flour and a little oil at home, and she was ready to die after eating, but Elijah told her , don't worry, just make it for him, and the widow did it, and the LORD God, as Elijah said, made the widow not lack of flour and oil, and they lived many days because of it, this is a miracle , God blessed the widow, because she first gave what she had to Elijah the prophet; the 488th song in the hymnbook is also a hymn written using this story.)
(I am currently in debt, do I often think about giving? Such a problem, I can't get over it myself, how can I have extra money to donate? Here I feel that our "faith" is important, like the widow, she believed what Elijah said and gave what she had, what about me? Do I believe what God says? God wants to bless His children a lot, and He promises that He will take care of their lives. Thinking of this, I feel that I am a person of little faith, who only sees myself as lame, and does not see that the Lord's feast is rich; Continuing financial dedication in the face of scarcity is the real "faith". Believing in God is, the environment is not, and we are not. May the Lord strengthen me, faithful dedication.)
