Where are we in the Gospels? Are we the rich? The poor? The disciples? The crowds? Are we like the Pharisees in some ways?

Today we will read the story of the Widow’s Mite from the Gospel of Mark 12:38-44. In that story Jesus observes a poor widow putting two worthless coins into the public treasury, and then he says that she had given more than the rich people who had given large sums of money. We will address some of the common lessons drawn from this story, talk about the meaning of the story, and suggest some questions for further discussion.
