Title: Going All In
1. In Matthew 6:21 Jesus tells us, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Where did the widow put her treasure in Mark 12:42-44? What does this reveal about what she found important and valuable? Where do you put your treasure? What does where you put your treasure reveal about what you find to be important and valuable?
2. Jesus tells us that the widow in today’s gospel reading “cast in all that she had, even all her living” (Mark 12:44). What does this tell us about the widow’s trust and dependence on God? How can you follow her example of trust in your own life?
3. The widow in today’s gospel doesn’t have much, but what she does have she gives to God. Likewise, Paul calls you in Romans 12:1 to offer yourself as a “living sacrifice” to God. How does this happen through faith in Christ? How does your faith constantly move you to give all that you are and all that you have to the Lord?
