One day Jesus was sitting over against the Treasury. He "beheld how the people cast money into the treasury: and many that were rich cast in much. And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites." (Mark 12:41-43).
What really spoke to me was how Mark the writer of this account said the people, and the rich "cast" in money. But the poor widow "threw" in her two mites. Though I know that this is about money, I saw something else. That word "threw" caused me to see past money.
The word "threw" in Greek is ballo which means: in various applications, (more or less violent or intense) with force and effort: to throw or let go of a thing without caring where it falls. To give over to one's care uncertain about the result. And to pour, pour into of rivers.
This poor widow gave a voluntary offering into the money not for the poor but for sacrifice. She poured it into the rivers of God's love.
It was not the money Jesus saw but her full surrender in worship. Her rivers of sacrifice are still eternally flowing. Is there anything you have not thrown into the rivers of loving sacrifice?
Let us not forget that Jesus still sees the treasury.
