Postlude

Mark 12:38-44 – New Revised Standard Version

38 As he taught, he said, “Beware of the scribes, who like to walk around in long robes and to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces

39 and to have the best seats in the synagogues and places of honor at banquets!

40 They devour widows’ houses and for the sake of appearance say long prayers. They will receive the greater condemnation.”

41 He sat down opposite the treasury and watched the crowd putting money into the treasury. Many rich people put in large sums.

42 A poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, which are worth a penny.

43 Then he called his disciples and said to them, “Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the treasury.

44 For all of them have contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, all she had to live on.”

Jesus observes a poor widow make a sacrificial offering in the Temple treasury box. Understanding our deep spiritual need to give generously to God. We’ll talk about the spiritual value of generosity:  what it means; what it does for us; what it does for our faith, our church
