  • The Poor Widow Series

    Contributed by Neil Partington on Jul 31, 2007
    based on 14 ratings
     | 6,690 views

    Many people give, but it really doesn’t show their committment to God. Today, we are going to look at a widow who didn’t give much by society’s standards, but she gave it all.

    When I was growing up, I participated in several organizations that held fundraisers. The High School band held the biggest fundraisers twice a year to support our band trips (Disney World, Boston, Canada, etc…). Because I didn’t have the money to go on the trips, it was important for me ...read more

  • Blessed Are The Poor Widows

    Contributed by Craig Condon on Aug 10, 2015
     | 3,647 views

    God measures giving not by what we give, but by what we keep for ourselves. He measures the gift by the sacrifice involved. That is why Jesus valued the widow’s gift. She sacrificed her well-being in order to show her love for God.

    When I was preparing my message for today, I came across a story about a little boy who went to church one Sunday morning to get out of the cold. He had been trying to sell newspapers, but no one had passed by. He entered the church, hoping to pass an hour unnoticed in the back row. The minister ...read more

     | 15,764 views

    Today we’ll learn a significant lesson from a seemingly insignificant person. If not for Jesus pointing her out, the act of the poor widow would’ve escaped everyone’s notice and the opportunity to learn a valuable lesson would’ve been lost.

    THE POOR WIDOW’S OFFERING (Mark 12:41-44) Today we’ll learn a significant lesson from a seemingly insignificant person. If not for Jesus pointing her out, the act of the poor widow would’ve escaped everyone’s notice and the opportunity to learn a valuable lesson ...read more

  • The Widow’s Mites Series

    Contributed by John Lowe on Jul 3, 2018
     | 2,356 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...

    -Tuesday- Jerusalem The Widow’s Mites (Lev. 27:30) Mark 12:41-44(Focal Passage), Luke 21:1-4 Mark 12:41-44 41 Now Jesus sat opposite the treasury and saw how the people put money into the treasury. And many who were rich put in much. 42 Then one poor widow came and threw in two ...read more

     | 9,964 views

    See what a poor widow can teach us about what it means to give everything.

    “The Mighty Mite” (Luke 21:1-4) Let’s take our Bibles and open them to Luke 21. We’ll be looking at verses 1-4, and I see this passage much like the PIP on many of the newer televisions out today. How many of you have seen the “picture-in-a-picture” technology? It lets you view two things on ...read more

    By contrasting the scribes with a poor widow woman, Jesus teaches us about true devotion.

  • Beware Of The Scribes Series

    Contributed by Freddy Fritz on Jan 30, 2016
    based on 2 ratings
     | 2,207 views

    Jesus' disapproval of the scribes and approval of the poor widow in Luke 20:45-21:4 warns us about the despotic authority of religious leadership.

    Scripture Jesus was in the final week of his life. After his triumphal entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, Jesus returned to the temple on Monday and drove out the merchants who were selling their wares and obscuring the people’s access to God. This enraged the religious rulers, who ...read more

A very poor return - ...read more

  • Give Sacrificially

    Contributed by David Mende on Aug 1, 2018
    based on 2 ratings
     | 3,980 views

    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.

    INTRODUCTION (SECURE ATTENTION) & BACKGROUND OF THE PASSAGE: PRAY before starting the sermon. ILLUSTRATION: {There is an old story about a king that was coming to visit a certain land. The people in the land were so excited that a king would grace their little village with his presence. They ...read more

  • Disgusted Or Delighted? Series

    Contributed by David Dykes on Jan 28, 2018
     | 3,493 views

    A stark contrast between religious hypocrites and a faithful woman. The religious show-offs were mostly interested in what they could GET out of life. And the poor widow as interested in all she could GIVE.

    INTRODUCTION My younger brother, Dan, and I are a lot alike. He serves as a Minister of Education and Senior Adults at a church in Conway, Arkansas. One thing we have in common is that we both have a sense of humor leaning toward puns and groaners. You’ve endured plenty of my groaners through ...read more
