In contrast to the self-satisfied, self-exalting, self-enriching, self-centred scribes, the poor widow displayed selfless sacrifice out of devotion to God. She gave what many would consider a small offering but what was, in fact, a huge gift, for she gave her all. Two small coins displayed a large heart and an even greater faith. Her testimony summarises the outlook of the Christian.
