Care for the Widows: Watching the Offering

Mark 12:38-44  What does Jesus want us to know about his comments about the poor widow’s offering? She was a small, unknown, un-noticed, powerless woman with her two coins–about 3 cents in today’s world.

Ignored by the wealthy, and the self-important of her day, she is cherished in Jesus’ eyes. She is a hero of faith. It’s not what she gave, but what she didn’t  hold back–she gave all she had. This story is about Who she trusts. She gave from a heart that tuned into God’s heart.

What is Jesus watching from our worship here?
