The story of the widow's mite:
Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd put their money into the temple treasury.
Many rich people threw in large amounts.
A poor widow came and put two very small copper coins, worth only a few cents.
Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, "Truly I tell you, this poor widow put more into the treasury than all the others.
They all gave out of their wealth, but she, out of her poverty, put in everything- all she had to live on." -Mark 12:41-44
