The Widow’s Offering

 

Mark 12:41-44

 

41 Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts. 42 But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a few pence.

 

43 Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, ‘Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. 44 They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything – all she had to live on.’

 

It is good to be generous with our money, our time, with kind words or to share our belongings because we have a kind, generous, loving God. Sometimes this giving can be sacrificial. Usually it expects nothing in return as it flows on from a compassionate heart.
