This video may just qualify as a modern-day retelling of our Lord’s famous parable about the widow’s mite. Watch it and reflect on these words from Scripture:

And He looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the treasury, and He saw also a certain poor widow putting in two mites. So He said, “Truly I say to you that this poor widow has put in more than all; for all these out of their abundance have put in offerings for God,but she out of her poverty put in all the livelihood that she had.” ( Luke 21:1-4)

In a society of abundance, what does true generosity mean?
