She gave all she had... verse 44. Another example of a person with great faith. According to Jesus she gave all she had to live on. We don't know what happened to this woman, but I believe that God continued to take care of her. Our Pastor has been preaching and leading our Sunday School class in a series based on the book Soul Shift by Tricia Robertson. This past week we looked at the difference between consumerism and stewardship. I think we see that a little here. The wealthy people gave just a little by comparison to their wealth, while the widow was a true steward and gave all she had. God ask for not only our money, but our time and talents as well. Don't know if Pastor came up with this or it was part of the book but it's a great quote:
Anyone can wear a cross. Jesus said, "Deny yourself, take up your cross and follow me."
