“This poor widow put in more than all the contributors to the treasury; for they all put in out of their surplus, but she, out of her poverty, put in all she owned, all she had to live on (Mark 12:43-44).

Jesus didn’t just teach us about loving sacrifice, he had the audacity to position himself near the treasury; to watch people give and then pronounce judgments regarding their hearts. In a society that tends to measure its heroes by the number of zeros in their checking account, we would do well to recognize that God’s heroes are those who have zero to offer and, yet, give all that they have. That’s the real bottom line.
