Men saw the rich donating from their riches
And thought them rightly proud of all they'd given;
The priests were glad to see them boost their system
Not knowing yet the time of their dismissal.
But Jesus watched and all their gifts diminished
When Jesus judged the motives of their giving.
He called His own to bring within their vision
The greatest giver, an under‑rated widow
Who had not shirked dispensing all her living.
Though men despised her the widow was distinguished.
True judgment valued the one who men belittled
‑ Some trait of Christ, whose giving was exquisite.


  1. David,

    You have eloquently captured the woman who gave all she had without expecting anything in return while others shared only a portion and boasted about what they had done!

  2. God looks at a mans heart, not only at what he does or how much he gives :)

    Thanks for stopping by today. It's nice to "meet" you.


I'm glad to hear how this strikes you!
