He(Jesus Christ) called His disciples to Himself and said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you that this poor widow has put in more than all those who have given to the treasury;for they all put in out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty put in all that she had, her whole livelihood.” -Mark 11:42-44
Jesus Christ was watching how people were giving money into treasury. Rich gave much, but this widow put two mites into treasury. Jesus Christ would have felt happy of that widow’s two mite. Hence He highlighted that widow’s offering.
Some times we may be in a situation of financial crisis, our friends or people close to us may ask us for money . we may say no to them. We may say to God ” I have only small saving, which is not sufficient for my need. Sorry God, I can’t lend money to him”. But our God will not be pleased by our answer. What he expects is we must help them. He knows if we have much money we will surely lend them. But God wants to check (test) us, do we really have a helping nature . In most of times we fail. When we like that widow help others with our small contribution, surely God will Bless us. Let God give us Grace to help others.
