Then one poor widow came and threw in two mites. Mark 12:42 New King James Version
In Jesus’ day they had a place to put your offerings for the temple that looked like a trumpet. It was built out of tin, so that when your offering was put in it made a sound. Each type of money was a different weight so that one worth a lot of money had a lot of weight to it while one that was of little value was small and little weight. Therefore when the rich put in the heavy coins it made a lot of sound and made them look important.
So what Jesus is saying is do not give to any cause just to look good to others. You may look good to others but Jehovah is not impressed if you are doing it for your ego. On the other hand any act done for Christ, no matter how small it looks to others impresses Jesus.
So the question is: who are you trying to impress?
Prayer: Please Jehovah Yahweh (God of His people) please grant me the grace to be an grateful child that desires to impress You with me worship and dedication to You. I beseech You in the name of he who dedicated His entire earthly life to being Your holy obedient son Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
