Poor Widow: Widow’s Mite
This story (often known as the “widow’s mite”) shows inequalities between the rich and the poor; and it is a beautiful thing. A person that is not rich in material things, is not destined to be poor in spirit. And a person buried in wealth, doesn’t necessarily have a golden heart. What will we do with what we’re blessed with? What will you do?
Luke 20: 45-47
- Then in the audience of all the people he said unto his disciples,
- (46) Beware of the scribes, which desire to walk in long robes, and love greetings in the markets, and the highest seats in the synagogues, and the chief rooms at feasts;
- (47) Which devour widows’ houses, and for a shew make long prayers: the same shall receive greater damnation.
Luke 21: 1-4 (KJV)
- And he looked up, and saw the rich men casting their gifts into the treasury.
- (2) And he saw also a certain poor widow casting in thither two mites.
- (3) And he said, Of a truth I say unto you, that this poor widow hath cast in more than they all:
- (4) For all these have of their abundance cast in unto the offerings of God: but she of her penury hath cast in all the living that she had.
