Jesus recognizes true devotion
The Scribes were religious leaders that commanded unrivaled authority in the first century.
• The Scribes lived for the attention of others.
• The Scribes thought they were hot stuff.
Grace is like water. It runs to the lowest place, so get low. - Martin Luther
• The Scribes were spiritual fakes.

Mark clearly contrasts the Scribes and the widow.

The sacrificial gift of the widow points to the sacrificial gift of Jesus.
she out of her poverty has put in everything she had…
The widow is a model of discipleship
Jesus quietly watches our gifts and service
The true value of a gift is measured by the sacrifice it occasions.
God can do great things with small offerings
Jesus recognizes true devotion
