    Jesus doesn't say that the poor widow gave more than anyone else. Rather, he says that she gave “more than all.” But why did Jesus say that she gave more than all? I would be delighted if you could rate this sermon and give a brief feedback.

     | 2,061 views

    This particular widow was down to her last two mites (worth a fraction of a penny), which was the smallest offering accepted. Since it was such a small amount and this was all she had, it is amazing that she did not keep one of the coins for herself...
