Daily Word Of God
As Jesus looked up, he saw rich people putting their offerings into the treasury; and he happened to notice a poverty-stricken widow putting in two small coins, and he said, ‘I tell you truly, this poor widow has put in more than any of them; for these have all contributed money they had over, but she from the little she had has put in all she had to live on.’
