And a poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, which make a penny. And he called his disciples to him and said to them, “Truly, I say to you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the offering box. For they all contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, all she had to live on.” (Mark 12:42-44 ESV)
І підійшла одна вбога вдовиця, і поклала дві лепті, цебто гріш. І покликав Він учнів Своїх та й промовив до них: Поправді кажу вам, що ця вбога вдовиця поклала найбільше за всіх, хто клав у скарбницю. Бо всі клали від лишка свого, а вона поклала з убозтва свого все, що мала, свій прожиток увесь… (Марка 12:42-44 Ukrainian)
Most holy and awesome God, our dear Heavenly Father ~ thank you Lord for the brightness of your loving kindness toward all people on this new day. Open the hearts of every believer so that all Christians will have a burning desire to sacrificially give to the great work of spreading the good news to all people in the world. Bless those who are poor in the wealth of this world and yet they live as examples of goodness and mercy. We pray in the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
