If you have studied the Bible much then you’ve read when Jesus said this: “Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing?….” (Matthew 10:29)
And if you have studied a little a bit more then you’ve read when Jesus praised this: “And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing.” (Mark 12:42)
But have you ever tied the two together for a much bigger lesson?
In one place the little coin called a farthing, think of a penny for simplicity, represents something insignificant but in the other it represents something of monumental proportions.
So how can something so little become something so great?
It happened then the same way it happens today – by adding God to the equation; because little is truly much when God is in it! EA
“For whoever gives you a cup of water to drink in My name, because you belong to Christ, assuredly, I say to you, he will by no means lose his reward.” (Mark 9:41)
