Last part: People who think that they are great

Mark chapter 12

The woman who gave everything

Verses 41-44

Other people gave more money than this woman did. But they still had plenty of money. This woman gave everything to God. She had nothing else.

Jesus said that, really, the woman gave a bigger gift than anyone else. She gave all her money because she loved God very much.

Perhaps other people thought that she was a fool. But when she gave her money, she was also giving her life to God. She wanted him to have everything. And God would not disappoint her.

Next part: Jesus describes future troubles
