Mark 12:43 And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury: 44 For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, even all her living.
I doubt most of us are giving, not really. I have given all of my life but never have I given the last that I had. I have given sacrificially but usually not that sacrificially. I give and like to compare myself to others, maybe!? But the truth is that I do not want to be compared to this lady. She was so in love that she gave beyond what she should have given.
Jesus knew that others might be giving to be seen but she was giving in humility. She didn’t want others to see the pittance she was giving. But Jesus saw and blessed her. He knows what we are giving. It is important that we consider giving from our heart and not just out of duty.
