Self vs. Sacrifice

The Widow's Two Mites

Luke 20:45-21:4

I. Pride and hypocrisy go hand-in-hand

    A. The dangers of these attitudes (Luke 20:45-46; Matthew 6:1,5,16; 1 Timothy 2:9-10; 3:2-6; Luke 14:7-11)
    B. Evil attitudes lead to evil actions (Luke 20:47; 18:11-12)

II. The sacrificial widow

    A. God’s people are supposed to take care of widows (Luke 21:1-4; Exodus 22:22; Deuteronomy 24:19-21; 27:19; James 1:27; 1 Timothy 5:3-6)
    B. She was selfless in her sacrifice (Luke 21:3-4; 2 Corinthians 8:1-5, 12; Galatians 6:10)
