The Widow's Mite - The Widow's Offering
from the New Testament
(Story on the back of
called the Scribes and Pharisees hypocrites because they loved to
sit in the chief seats in the synagogues and make long prayers there
so that the people might see and praise them for doing it; while,
at the same time, they were unjust to other persons and cruel to
the poor, taking for their own what did not belong to them. Because
they did these things, Jesus said, they should receive the greater
punishment on Judgment Day.
he sat in the court of the temple where the chests, or boxes, were
placed, into which the people placed the money that they gave to
buy sacrifices. And many persons who were rich gave much. But there
came a poor widow who gave only two mites, which was less than a
penny. Then Jesus called his disciples to him and told them that
the small sum of money the poor woman had put into the box seemed
more to God than all that the rich men had given. For they, Jesus
said, had much left for themselves, because they gave only a very
small part of the riches they possessed. But the poor widow had
nothing left for herself, because she gave all that she had.
