Sermon Notes

Mark 12:41-44

While sitting in the temple courts, Jesus saw a poor unnamed widow put two pennies into the offering box.  I’m sure his comments surprised the disciples, but they taught valuable lessons about Christian stewardship.

  • God takes notice of our giving.
  • He cares more about the “how” than the “what.”
  • God expects and honors sacrifice and generosity for the cause of Christ.
  • God exalts the small when it represents our best.
  • If God commented on your giving, what would He have to say?
