Who are my heroes?


Today I was drawn towards Mark 12:41-44,

Sitting across from the temple treasury, he watched how the crowd dropped money into the treasury. Many rich people were putting in large sums. Then a poor widow came and dropped in two tiny coins worth very little. Summoning his disciples, he said to them, “Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. For they all gave out of their surplus, but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had—all she had to live on.”

Do I see women?

Do I see poor women?

Do tiny gifts - given in faithful love to God - matter to me?

Jesus honored the gift of a poor widow more than the high-status, big-money gifts.

God, reorder the priorities of my heart.
