WHAT MAKES the widow’s mite valuable is the heart and sacrifice behind it. The hidden value of her offering teaches us that material goods are not the most important. Today’s Gospel points to discipleship: generosity of spirit, not money. God is looking for our hearts, not our possessions. Often, our giving to worthy causes is a conscience solver. We can use them as an excuse to avoid personal involvement to the marginalised. Learning to give generously to God is difficult but we are not true Christians without such self-denial. – Rev. D. Knowles
