The Poor Widow’s Gift

Wait What?: The Hard Sayings of Jesus

Pastor Danny de Armas | December 4, 2016

Senior Associate Pastor Danny de Armas shares how Jesus observes people giving their offerings at the temple. As Jesus notices a widow who puts in just two small coins, he takes the opportunity to have a teachable moment with his disciples. He points out to them that the widow’s seemingly small gift is really bigger in the eyes of God than the relatively larger gifts of others. The reason? She gave sacrificially, while they gave out of their abundance. The point? It is not about how much we give, but about how much we hold back.
