Luke 21:1–4 (ESV)

The Widow’s Offering

21 Jesus looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the offering box, and he saw a poor widow put in two small copper coins. And he said, “Truly, I tell you, this poor widow has put in more than all of them. For they all contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on.”

 

Jesus highlights the widow in order to teach what God values. Our giving reflects our priorities. “For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sake He became poor, so that you by His poverty might become rich” (2Co 8:9).

 

I pray: Lord, open our hearts by Your generous goodness. Amen.
