Luke 21:1-4 ” As He looked up, Jesus saw the rich putting their gifts into the Temple treasury. He also saw a poor widow put in two very small copper coins. ‘I tell you the truth,’ He said, ‘this poor widow has put in more than all the others. All these people gave their gifts out of their wealth; but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on.’

Giving…whether it be money, time or talents is a real stumbling block for many Christians.  We tend to be a selfish, self-centered people…when the Lord wants us to be generous.  We want to be recognized and honored for anything we do…when the Lord requires discretion. (Matthew 6:1-4)  We give the Lord  left-overs…rather than, like the poor widow, giving all we have.
