2021-11-07 Sunday Worship – The Widow’s Offering

This week, Jesus observes a widow who drops what amounts to a penny into the temple offering. Such a small amount would seem pointless, wouldn’t it? What worth can a single penny possibly have in the grand budget of the temple? Yet Jesus tells his disciples that this widow had given more up to God than all of the devout religious leaders of the temple. This penny, was worth more than a lifetime of devotion. Why is that? This week, Rev. Mathew reflects on this episode from Mark 12:38-44.
