    Contributed by David Owens on Sep 19, 2022

    Widows have a special place in God's heart. When Paul was giving Timothy instructions about ministering to different groups in the church, he gave a lot of instructions about caring for widows.

    Introduction: A. Once there was an elderly widow who had recently married a 4th husband. 1. A reporter saw the wedding announcement and was interested in her story, so she interviewed her. 2. The reporter asked her about the occupation of her newly acquired husband and she replied that he owned a more

    Should the congregation have an "Order of Widows" to serve within the assembly?

    “Let a widow be enrolled if she is not less than sixty years of age, having been the wife of one husband, and having a reputation for good works: if she has brought up children, has shown hospitality, has washed the feet of the saints, has cared for the afflicted, and has devoted herself to more

  • The Widow's Mite Series

    Contributed by Barry O Johnson on Apr 29, 2018
    based on 3 ratings

    The story of the widow's mite has been used to show Christians what their attitude toward giving should be. This message challenges that traditional and longstanding teaching.

    Growing up I don’t think I heard a teaching about the widow’s mite that did not take the widow and make her the standard by which all of us are to give when it comes to our giving. “This poor widow woman came to the altar and gave her last mite. She did that for the Lord! What an example she is to more

  • Blessed Are The Poor Widows

    Contributed by Craig Condon on Aug 9, 2015

    God measures giving not by what we give, but by what we keep for ourselves. He measures the gift by the sacrifice involved. That is why Jesus valued the widow’s gift. She sacrificed her well-being in order to show her love for God.

    When I was preparing my message for today, I came across a story about a little boy who went to church one Sunday morning to get out of the cold. He had been trying to sell newspapers, but no one had passed by. He entered the church, hoping to pass an hour unnoticed in the back row. The minister more

    Among the vices mentioned in Galatians 5:19 are anger and stubbornness but these can be used in a holy way. Hatred of evil is considered a holy hatred, so is holy stubbornness that serves the purpose of carrying out an effort in a determined, persistent way until one prevails. Holy stubbornness is more

    Title: “The Widow’s Might” Introduction: Jesus had just warned the people about the leaven of the Pharisees. They looked religious on outward appearance, but God looks upon the heart of a man.
