Bible: Luke 20:45-21:4

Jesus Warns the Disciples against Pride

20:45 As 1  all the people were listening, Jesus 2  said to his disciples, 20:46 Beware 3  of the experts in the law. 4  They 5  like walking around in long robes, and they love elaborate greetings 6  in the marketplaces and the best seats 7  in the synagogues 8  and the places of honor at banquets. 20:47 They 9  devour 10  widowsproperty, 11  and as a show make long prayers. They will receive a more severe punishment.”

The Widow’s Offering

21:1 Jesus 12  looked up 13  and saw the rich putting their gifts into the offering box. 14  21:2 He also saw a poor widow put in two small copper coins. 15  21:3 He 16  said, “I tell you the truth, 17  this poor widow has put in more than all of them. 18  21:4 For they all offered their gifts out of their wealth. 19  But she, out of her poverty, put in everything she had to live on.” 20
