The Story of Jesus

The Widow's Mite

When Jesus heard the voice from heaven, he felt strengthened. He found a place to sit down near the temple treasury. Here were the money boxes where the people gave their offerings. Jesus saw rich men give large offerings. Also he saw a poor widow stop to put in two small coins. Together these coins were worth less than a penny.

Turning to his disciples, Jesus said, "Truly, I tell you this poor widow has given more than anyone else. Others had plenty to give She is poor, yet she gave all that she had."

With his disciples, Jesus left the temple for the last time.
