While Jesus was in the Temple, he watched the rich people putting their gifts into the collection box.
Then a poor widow came by and dropped in two pennies. a3"I assure you," he said, "this poor widow has given more than all the rest of them. 4For they have given a tiny part of their surplus, but she, poor as she is, has given everything she has."5
Some of his disciples began talking about the beautiful stonework of the Temple and the memorial decorations on the walls. But Jesus said,
6"The time is coming when all these things will be so completely demolished that not one stone will be left on top of another."
