Luke 21

Luke 21:4
The widow put in all she had to live on.

I find it interesting that Jesus would even let her do this. She had nothing and he watched her give even the little she had away. He idly sat by and observed the scene. He didn’t offer any help in the moment. From a human perspective that could seem callous. From a heavenly perspective, he’s doing her the greatest honor in the world, and allowing the windows of heaven to open over her life (see Mal. 3:10). I just wish we could hear the rest of her story. Someday I presume we will.
Oh, for the same heart to honor and trust God, even when Jesus seems to do nothing.
