The Widow's Mite Bible Lesson and Crafts
But I look at what is in the heart. Props: A disassembled toy or other item with multiple parts preferably one that looks difficult to put together. An assembly manual or a stack of printed papers that look like an assembly manual. A ziploc bag containing four cookies, and a second bag containing half a cookie. Dump the parts of the disassembled item out onto a table. Flip through the assembly manual while looking perplexed. But the instructions are really hard to understand.

These instructions make no sense! What do you think? What might help me out? You know, Jesus must have known that people need to see things with their own eyes to understand. If Jesus just told His followers what to do, they might not get it. But by watching someone else do the right thing, the disciples understood so much more.
The person Jesus used as an example in this case was a widow. And even though she was very poor because her husband had died, this widow was a wonderful example of what it means to be generous and to give with a pure heart. Jesus wanted His disciples—and us—to follow her example when we give to God and others.

Say: Remember last week, Jesus had just come to Jerusalem. It was one week before He would give up His life on the cross. When He went to the temple, He saw the money changers and animal traders selling things in the temple. He ran them out boldly, because the temple was a place to worship God, not a place to cheat people out of their money! Ask: How did the Pharisees and religious leaders feel about that? They were angry.
They began plotting to kill Jesus. Since Jesus is God, He knew the true hearts and thoughts of these religious leaders. Teacher note: Even though this passage of scripture involves issues of monetary giving, we should make sure that the children understand that there are many ways to give and be generous.
Sure, giving money is good. But people can also be generous with their possessions, with their time, with their forgiveness, with the Gospel, etc. Make sure to focus on the importance of sacrificial giving in all circumstances, not merely on the generous giving of money. The giving of the first Christians was spontaneous, unguarded, and uncalculated. And all the while God takes care of our immediate needs.
But we are to think like Christ, not the world. Jesus sat down across from the place where people put their temple offerings.
WIDOW WITH TWO MITES
He watched the crowd putting their money into the offering boxes. Many rich people threw large amounts into them. But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins. They were worth much less than a penny. Jesus asked his disciples to come to Him. That poor widow has put more into the offering box than all the others.
