what about the widow – v2

Christ said to give
but we want to be prudent
to have what we need
whatever that means
but what about the widow
who gave her last two coins
(but that was in the Temple)
what about Mary
who poured out the nard
on the feet of Jesus
What is our charge
the command of Jesus
can we be a Christian
with a healthy bank balance
do we trust God to provide
if we have full barns
more manna than we need
for the current day,
or the next if it is Friday,
what are we to give
when we are asked by our neighbor
