And he sat down opposite the treasury and watched the people putting money into the offering box. Many rich people put in large sums. And a poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, which make a penny. And he called his disciples to him and said to them, “Truly, I say to you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the offering box. For they all contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, all she had to live on” (Mark 12:41-44).
What do you want said of you at the end of your life, that you gave large sums but a tenth of your life or that you gave a meager amount but the whole of your life? With whom do you think that Christ will be pleased, and which one do you think will have treasures stored up for himself in heaven?
