Luke 21:2 [Jesus] also saw a poor widow put in two small copper coins.
Jesus says that what matters most is being authentic and having authentic relationships with God. This widow woman understands authenticity. Her relationship with God is as real as roses, and she places everything she has in the treasury because of this. Her authenticity is the reason Jesus stops and singles her out as an example of how we are to give. God willing, may we too learn to love, live, and give so boldly.
