A Certain Widow
Luke 21 (NKJV) 1 And He looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the treasury,
2 and He saw also a certain poor widow putting in two mites.
3 So He said, “Truly I say to you that this poor widow has put in more than all;
4 for all these out of their abundance have put in offerings for God, but she out of her poverty put in all the livelihood that she had.” source
The Text does not say just any widow but a certain widow. A poor widow. This is what we know about her. A Certain Poor Widow that Gave.
And from this, I see that GOD pays attention.
The Penman, Luke, was not moved to tell us her name but he did use the word certain. Meaning GOD knew for certain who she was.
And surely there were other widows in Jerusalem. But this certain widow GAVE. She gave out of lack, not plenty. Others made much noise as their coins flooded the coffers. (Perhaps the Temple Vessels looked something like these pictured – or not.)
Her offering likely made little noise. She quietly gave all she had.
And GOD noticed.
I think He still does.
