“This poor widow has put in more than all.”
What Jesus sees of value is so different to the world. He invites us to step out when we may feel like we have next to nothing to give, when maybe our ‘everything’ does not look like much objectively speaking. Jesus operates from another level, from the heart, from love and compassion. He sees beyond first or external impressions, He does not want us to wait until we feel we have abundance, to give something that is perceived to be of worth, he wants the gifts that come from our places of poverty.
What is our penny? What is the last thing we have that we do not want to let go of? Jesus values offerings of our trust and surrender and humility. He sees beyond what we give to what it personally cost us to give it.
