Widow's Mite

Mark 12:38-44

Bus Tokens

A guest at a mission congregation's worship service lived in a halfway house.    

After worship they found bus tokens in the offering.  

When he told that story in our pastor's text study, someone asked, "What can a church do with those?"  

The answer was, "It doesn't matter.  He put in all he had".
