A Poor Woman's Offering

One day Jesus was sitting in the temple. The box where people offered money was nearby. Jesus was watching the people putting in their money. Many rich men put in a lot of money.

Then a poor woman came in. She dropped two little coins into a box.

Jesus called his followers together and said to them, “The money that this poor woman put into the box has more value to God than the money put in by all the others. The rich men put in what they did not need, but this poor woman put in the money that she needed for food, and she put in all she had.”
