As a follow up to Sunday’s message I noted with interest that this chapter begins with the Widow who had little but gave all.
Then the attention turned to the impressive structure of the temple. When the physical structure caught the disciples eye, Jesus began to teach about the future. He noted that it would be destroyed (actually happened in 70 ad) but that before that there would be persecution. (we will read about some of that in Acts) Today the temple sits as a footnote to its former greatness…. but all who follow christ know the testimony of apoor Jewish widow who had little but gave all….. Following Jesus is not about what we have but about what we give.
