"You wanna know who the toughest man I ever met is? And you wanna know who the richest woman on earth is? "
- Why do you think Jesus was so impressed by the widow's gift of two small copper coins?
- What are just a couple of ways that you can give everything you've got today?
- What do you think the results will do?
00:13 You wanna know who the toughest man I ever met is? And you wanna know who the richest woman on earth is? Well, I'm gonna tell you today, it's in Luke chapter twenty-one verse one through four and scriptures says this, it says, "and Jesus looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the treasury and he saw a poor widow putting in two small copper coins. And he said, truly, I say to you, this poor widow put in more than all of them for they out of their surplus, put in an offering, but she, out of her poverty, put in all that she had to live on."
00:45 To Jesus. On that day, she was the richest woman on earth. The toughest man I ever met. His name is Lyle Snike. You know what? He's been the best in America and his sport more than once. He makes his living on the back of a snorting beast. He goes to work in old, worn out jeans and he steps in piles of manure at his office place. He's eats his lunch with the back of spitting Cowboys. He digs deep in a Brown paper bag every day. He pulls out, bologna on a piece of Texas toast. He grins, he takes a bite. He pays his entry fees with the money he's earned shoeing horses. He gets on, he rides, he falls, he lands on his head. The next time he rides, he's wearing a knee, knee brace. The next time he stays on, sometimes he works all night and he comes home poor, dirty, but his wife Kathy, she adores him. Sasha, his little girl, she loves to feel the bump of the broken collarbone. Lyle loves Jesus. Lyle lives life eight seconds at a time and Lyle gives everything he has every time he gets back on one of those premium bulls and Lyle Snike has probably led more men to Christ in his profession probably than any men I know on earth.
02:01 You know what? Sometimes success is measured in small increments. Why do you think Jesus was so impressed by the widow's gift of two small copper coins? And the second question today is this man giving your all comes in many different forms, doesn't it? Name a couple. You know what are just a couple of ways that you can give everything you've got today? And then, and then when you do, what do you think the results will do? And here's the lifeline. You know what if in your family, what if in your home you gave 100% to the other people in your hands? What do you think your family would look like?
