Our Donation Symbol
"Widow’s Mite" - Donate Button Symbol
We chose this symbol because of what it represents in terms of giving. The widow becomes a model for discipleship. It is not the amount given but her motivation and gift of love. Of her own free will, she had given all she possessed (two small coins worth about ½ cent each), and her act meant more to Jesus than anything he had seen by those who were giving of their abundance. In witness of the widow’s offering, the Pharisees and Sadducees might have thought: What difference can a few coins make? How can her contribution count at all? Yet, didn’t she express a higher concept of abundance and love than the wealthiest Jews of her time?
