The widow gave it all.

While others didn’t pay any attention to what they were giving, the widow knew what would tumble into the offering vessel…
Did they think that it was as simple as that? Did they think that God would love them more than those less fortunate?

For two days now, the temple has been the scene of commerce as the foundation to credo. For many, if the coins clinked in the pots they assumed that all was well If you were seen doing the right things at the right time in the right amounts then you were ‘safe’.

We are all children of God. We have different skills, stories and situations which result in us giving different amounts of ourselves when we can.

May the puffed-up barriers created by the pompous in religion be deflated. May we all journey through Holy Week knowing that we all have something to give. What are you being called to offer?
