The Widow’s Mite
Jesus had been teaching in the Temple. But now he sat down near the treasury and watched as many visitors to the Temple passed by and dropped money into the collecting box to help with God’s work.
The rich men dressed in fine robes threw I handfuls of coins as they passed, without a thought. But then a poor widow came by, paused, and placed just two mites (tiny coins) into the box.
Jesus called his disciples and told them what he had seen.
Then he said to them, ‘Let me tell you, this poor widow gave more than all those people who threw coins into the treasury. The wealthy men gave just a small part of their riches which made no difference to them. But the widow gave all that she had.’
Based on Mark 12:41-44
