“While Jesus was in the Temple, he watched the rich people dropping their gifts in the collection box. 2 Then a poor widow came by and dropped in two small coins. 3 “I tell you the truth,” Jesus said, “this poor widow has given more than all the rest of them. 4 For they have given a tiny part of their surplus, but she, poor as she is, has given everything she has.”
Insight: Jesus elevated this poor woman who gave sacrificially as an example for how we too should give. When we give out of faith in God to provide for our needs, and with a generous and humble heart, God notices and honors our giving.
Prayer: Jesus, I acknowledge that you are the giver of all things, and that all I have is because you have provided it. Help me to have a humble and generous heart with all that I have.
