Ps 146; 1Kings 17:10-16; Hebrews 9:24-28;
Mark 12:38-44


Jesus compares the ostentatious giving of the rich to that of the widow. “They have all contributed from their surplus wealth but she, from her poverty, has contributed all she had, her whole livelihood.” Jesus praises the widow’s action but does not condemn the wealthy. Do we sometimes critically judge others without knowing too much about them? Reflect - “To consider your self nothing and always to think highly of others is great wisdom and perfection” (Thomas a Kempis). God make me more tolerant and less judgmental.
