Brews 9:24-28)

Cebu Daily News - - PUZZLES -

In the course of his teach­ing Je­sus said to the crowds, "Be­ware of the scribes, who like to go around in long robes and ac­cept greet­ings in the mar­ket­places, seats of honor in syn­a­gogues, and places of honor at ban­quets. They devour the houses of wid­ows and, as a pre­text re­cite lengthy prayers. They will re­ceive a very se­vere con­dem­na­tion." He sat down op­po­site the trea­sury and ob­served how the crowd put money into the trea­sury. Many rich peo­ple put in large sums. A poor widow also came and put in two small coins worth a few cents. Call­ing his dis­ci­ples to him­self, he said to them, "Amen, I say to you, this poor widow put in more than all the other con­trib­u­tors to the trea­sury. For they have all con­trib­uted from their sur­plus wealth, but she, from her poverty, has con­trib­uted all she had, her whole liveli­hood." (Mark 12:38-44)
