2 Coins

And he said, Of a truth I say unto you, that this poor widow hath cast in more than they all: For all these have of their abundance cast in unto the offerings of God: but she of her penury hath cast in all the living that she had. Luke 21:3-4

The New Covenant is about having a “New Heart”, its not about what religious acts we perform or how much money we give, its about the intention of the heart. Do you love God with all your Heart, Mind, and Soul

Here we see the rich putting in their large gifts or offering into the box, and a poor widow giving only 2 coins. Jesus observes this and says she has given more with 2 coins, than all of the rich in the synagogue. Why? Lets think about her situation.

She was a widow, meaning her husband passed away, in the Jewish culture at this time she had no income. There was no welfare system, she was living hand and mouth. So for her to give 2 coins, meant her family might not have any food to eat. It means she is now poorer than poor

But what does that say about her faith? It says she totally trust in God to provide for all her needs. This is why Jesus commends her gift above the others. Because she gave from the heart with true faith. While others just give God crumbs they had leftover

This is not about money , its about your Heart. What are you giving to God? Are you giving everything you have or are you giving him the crumbs underneath the table?
