As Jesus teaches a large crowd in the temple courts, He warns against the leaders who put on a show. These are people who put on a false front to earn the respect of others, people whose hearts are not what they appear to be. Jesus then watches as the people from the crowd give their money to the treasury. The wealthy give lots, out of their abundance, but a poor widow gives two small coins, everything she has to live on. Jesus takes note of the woman and points out that she gave more than the others. No matter how much or how little we have, Jesus sees not only our actions but also where our heart is. And the way He gives everything for us will shape our hearts into a generosity that reflects His own.
