The Great Contrast Between the Scribes and the Widow (Mark 12:38-44)
Scripture: Mark 12:38–12:44
In Mark 12:38-44 we witness a contrast between the Scribes of Israel who lived for having honor before men and a widow who lived to honor God. This passage informs us that being disciples of Christ will prevent us from having status in the eyes of the world, but it also teaches us that living for God and His promises is well worth the cost because of the great reward in the end! Come and learn why Jesus commended the smallest of gifts from this poor widow.
