BIBLICAL REFERENCE TO GIVING
"Jesus sat down opposite the treasury, and watched the crowd putting money into the temple treasury. Many rich people put in large sums. A poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, which are worth a penny. Then he called his disciples and said to them, 'Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the treasury. For all of them have contributed out of their abundance; but she, out of her poverty, has put in everything she had -- all she had to live on.'"
