“Hope or Desperation?”

December 6, 2018

 

Luke 21: 3, 4:  “Truly I say to you, this poor widow put in more than all of them; for they all out of their surplus put into the offering; but she out of her poverty put in all that she had to live on.”  So was this the dear widow’s final act of desperation, or a declaration of hope?  Jesus saw it as a proclamation that her hope lay beyond her situation, beyond her bottom line.  It was the rich who, in seeking for “mo money,” were sowing in a desperate attempt to receive a bigger return.  The widow gave more because, in reality, she had more; more of what really matters.
